WP haters and general wankers will forget it soon enough because "Apple always updates correctly and never has any problems updating to everyone all at once." :rolleyes:

You forgot to put viruses in your avatar btw. ;)

Installed iOS5 on my iPad in 20 mins this morning start to finish, no problems whatsoever. Usual issue of servers getting hammered right at the very start what with everyone updating on the same day globally regardless of whether they have an iPhone 4, 3GS, iPad, iPad 2, iPod Touch 3rd/4th gen.

As for not doing as well as MS and Mango, I'm guessing that's a joke, right? 1 day, well upwards of 100 million devices across 6 form factors inc. tablets and phones and hordes of carriers and the worst thing that happened was it got a bit slow - or 2 weeks and counting for a fraction of that install base and some people still don't know when Mango might arrive.

I think MS could still stand to learn a thing or two from Apple on the update delivery front ;)

I like how "slow downs" is all you got from the article.

Yes, to limit the devices on the users end to a minimum of form factors. I truly hate these back and forth gotcha type moments that ******'s live for but there is nothing to learn from Apple in this case.

May all your updates go smoothly...unless its for Android in which case I hope your phone melts. :p

It went pretty smooth on my wife's phone yesterday. It took a while due to my older computer and slow internet connection.
