    Well its a bit buggy, i had to hard reset after next reboot - it was stuck by logon screen.

    Explorer feels a bit sluggish and there are some freezes time to time, idk if im gonna stick with this leak...

    It almost ruined my windows, barely saved it in Safemode after numerous retires. No wonder MS took it down..

    It kept freezing on desktop and I had to hardreset every time after 2-3min.. Most of the time explorer stopped working and 1core to the max 100% and sometimes mouse, keyboard stopped working :rolleyes:

    Also I can't uninstall that first update KB2919442 anymore, I hope it won't cause any extra trouble.

    I can't tell the difference other than you can pin metro apps to the taskbar now. Everything seems to be working so far.

    Same, working fine, feels slightly snappier, you have right click options on Metro tiles now too along with updated IE11, Control Panel link in Metro settings screen and title bar with close and minimise buttons on Metro apps

    Well im using windows8 updated to win8.1 via store and WMC on top of that.. Guess its a combo of all 3 making compatibility issues.

    Idk what would be the other cause.. Im no noob xD


    All starts ok but then some startup apps won't start (creative volume panel, process lasso) and after that system starts to feel sluggish and freezes eventually with 1core to the max 100%..

    Meh not impressed so far, will wait for official rls.

    Mine was a clean install of 8.1 from a couple months ago, after the main update I lost USB3.0, but after the last 4th update and reboot, everything was fine again

    Did you reboot after every update ?

    Yea, its not really a major ground-breaking update anyway, I don't even notice the difference really because I don't use Metro at all
