Download speeds are (surprisingly) good from TechNet.
Downloaded it last night - and starting to install the update
If using the ZIP then please take note of the README file as there is a specific order to install the MSU's in
Whats new in the update does anyone know???
About to find out if this breaks OneDrive for linked accounts the same way KB2923768 does...
Update: Yep, changes are no longer synced in Explorer and the App says "There was a problem opening this location", just like before.
Now to see if I can automate unpinning the ****ing Windows Store from the Taskbar as it's added by default for every user...

Windows 8.1 Update 1 ISO to be released on 14 April 2014 to VLSC « Windows IT Pro
As we've covered a bunch here at WindowsITPro, the 1st update to Windows 8.1 will release through Windows Update on 8 April 2014 as part of Microsoft's regularly scheduled Patch Tuesday. This update is extremely important in that, unless an organization installs it prior to April's Patch Tuesday, no further security updates will be offered. Microsoft has also stated that Update 1 should be treated as any other security update and follow recommended guidelines and corporate policy for updating quickly.
Update 1 requires a dependency (KB2919442) before installing. Once available the update will be labeled as KB2919355. Organizations using WSUS, Windows Intune, or System Center Configuration Manager to update systems can just approve or deploy it. There is a manual way of installing the update for those downloading early from MSDN and TechNet (yes, TechNet), but I'd just wait until it's available as a smooth update through Windows Update and connected services.
But, what about those companies that depend on created computer images for deploying or upgrading systems?
On 14 April 2014, the Windows 8.1 ISO will be updated with the Update 1 bits and made available for download from Microsoft's Volume License Service Center. The updated ISO will replace the one originally made available to VLSC in October 2013.
Windows 8.1 Update 1 is a cumulative update, so the new ISO should be used to replace the one stored for image creation now. Instead of just updating your current images with the separate files delivering on 8 April, Microsoft is recommending a full swap. Just use the new ISO.

I tried to us the ZIP files from TechNet on a VM and it wasnt for having it - ended up upgrading via the ISO - though it doesnt take long
dont want to risk it via SCCM for updating, so may use the ISO method for my current 8.1 PCs and use SCCM for new deployments.
Yep - when the US wakeup - expect it around 3PM!
Bah! I don't want to wait that long! Stupid Microsoft and their XP killing employees! *Grumble Grumble*
