    Yeap, the servers must be overwhelmed. If Windows 8 is so unpopular how is that possible?

    do you mean just let the circle spin or just try again later? maybe something is downloading, but i'm used to seeing a bar for download progress thanks for the reply!

    I would try again in a few minutes. There will be a progress bar when downloading, the spinning circles means it's trying to load something.

    Here it took like 5min to download (corporate connection, wooop), and more than 30min to install. The damn thing had to restart 3 times to apply the update!!!

    Is there a minimum amount of free space needed for the update on Surface RT?

    "Gathering info" is nothing, after restart there's a lot more to setup. When I thought this setting up is done, then there's another setting up showing up, running another 0% to 100%.......Damn it, it's been nearly an hour since the restart, and I'm now stuck here in "Setting up a few more things 80%" for quite some while, when does it end?!

    It doesn't take much to overwhelm a PC-XT with 2 floppy drives and 640Kb RAM. :P

    So is RT smooth now? or is RT laggy still and apps are sluggish.

    OK...after the "preparing to restart" I went to the loo so don't know if it restarted! But now got another 0-100% "downloading" bar which has been doing nothing for 15 mins.

    Update: It was AVG antivirus had stopped the install. After allowing it as an exception in AVG, it started the download.

    Hard to tell at the moment while i'm installing 80 apps, importing my emails, contacts, music, accounts, and much more... lol

    But I can surely say, that dreaded keyboard lag and bs with that is still here and I am super pissed. Actually the keyboard is more buggy then it was in the preview I am so incredibly pissed now.

    Finally, I go through the setting up progress, now I'm in, and it says "Installing your apps", what does it means? Installing my apps I already installed from Windows Store?

    Eh another firmware update came up after the install. hopefully that fixes my keyboard problem!
