Well, I purchased a new laptop for work and have been working on getting things setup. Since I like things my own way, I formatted what Dell provided and started over from scratch.
Was surprised how many updates where are already for Windows 8. From a clean install, it was 30 updates in the first wave with nearly 500MB to download. Once complete, I checked for updates again and 5 more updates totaling another 425MB were needed.
Need to almost build a slipstreamed installer already. Bring on SP1.
