    If you think the download is slow, wait til it reboots!

    took about an hour to get through all the various stages

    The longest bits were

    Setting up a few more things xx% Complete = 30 minutes!
    then after first login there is a few more (setting up apps, etc) then:
    Almost ready = 45 minutes!

    Anyone noticed that upgrading to 8.1 seems to naff up the .NET 3.5 software breaking any apps that use it?

    dont know why this is not done as a windows update, wouldve made life soo much easy!!
    Are you checking the Store "Updates" tab? If so, ye've gan too faarrr! It's on the Store homepage. That's right, not only is it not a Windows Update, the method we've come to expect to receive OS updates, it's not even a Store update! #MakesSense

    I've given up for this for today at least. My W8 test laptop hangs when running updates. VLSC won't download it (gets to about 10% at best before dropping out)

    For all the build up its fallen flat at the moment!

    I've just had to download and install about a GB of driver updates from Asus for my Z87-Deluxe board. Bit of a pain that.
    However, all being said and done, well done Asus for having brand new 8.1 drivers available for download straight away!

    Same a @jmr, not seeing anything in VLSC, I take it it should appear in the download list just below Windows 8?

    Only just managed to get on VLSC (let me log in, but not go to downloads all morning), and I can't even find it!

    I think we need to start a petition to get a proper MS Start Menu Button and Menu back. Perhaps that'll be Windows 8 v8.2?

    My Store is now broken! When I click it, it opens and then closes again straight away. With VLSC knackered I guess I'll be waiting a long time to try out 8.1!

    Anyone else trying to get it from VLSC finding it ironic how the download manager even fails? That's the whole bloody point of it!

    Be great if I could even see it in there! What category is it under? Windows?
