    Not really, I updated a couple of desktops with update 1 without any issue.

    I also think Update2 is likely to be just a rollup of KB's like an SP.

    Until a preview gets leaked it's anyone's guess....
    Basically what it might just be, bunch of hotfixes and optimizations. On Windows Phone, this is the norm. When version 8.0 was released, the GDR1 update was released a couple months later to address some performance flaws, no new features. GDR2 had a couple of things to it, but not much. GDR3 was more significant.

    Even if it leaked now, I think most would wait for the official version. That's my plan anyway. I'll be looking for the stand alone to show up on MSDN. Hopefully a new fully integrated ISO too.
    I will wait for the official version, at least for my production machines. Update 1 leak was a pain for me !
