    Here are the things I tested after the install (in the order that I did them):

    Observed a new Start and Apps menu
    Checked my system settings - all were saved OK
    Check RAM allocation – Didn't notice any major difference (on my rig)
    IE11 – All previous settings were saved
    Program lauch times – Didn't notice any difference (my PC was already fast)
    Ran Winsat Formal – No difference in WEI scores
    Observed a new Store Icon on my desktop taskbar - Unpined and it went away
    Windows Updates – No new ones offered/available
    Event Viewer – A few logs generated during the update but they never came back after a few reboots
    Event Viewer – No errors or new informationals either (again after a few reboots)
    Restart Time – Feels about the same to me
    Cold Boot Time – Feels about the same to me
    Ran a boot-time scan (using Avast 2014) – No issues/all clean

    Good luck to all,

    So, looks like "molehills and mountains" may apply.

    I have the update installed ( obtained the downloads from the tester source.)

    Nothing to get really excited about, so for those in doubt, I would suggest you just hang around for the official update.

    I am waiting for an official iso of windows 8.1, including the update, which I understand MSDN will be offering. I really would like to try an clean install.

    It is important to get the install order correct. This should be:

    KB2919442 early preparation File.
    KB2939087 2nd early preparation File
    KB2919355 The full actual update.
    The following are, you could say, updates to the update. They are named "Feature updates", There may be a couple or so more of these before the final release.

    I'm gonna wait for the official release of W8.1 Update 1... I don't wanna risk breaking my system!
    But it is really curious the thing that MS leaked the build! xDDD

    Just finished updating with the 9600.17025.WINBLUE_GDR.140214-1706 leak. I haven't noticed anything different from the previous leak. Only just started looking around though. SkyDrive is now OneDrive but the last leaked update 1 did that too.

    Yes !

    But I started my update more than a hour ago and it's still running !
    Did your update took so much to complete?



    After all it messed my OS and I had to refresh Windows, but it's working now !
    I think the problem was with the pre-update packages.
