Patch Tuesday updates are now live and Surface owners get a new firmware and a performance rollup patch. Applying right now on my surface, hope to report back soon if I see anything changed.

On Windows 8 it takes ages to install those updates, at least 20 min on my computer, probably even more.

SSD or non SSD? It took a while for an SSD anyway to install them about 5 mins.

Oh dear god, what's with the massive updates? This seals the deal for me, I'm gonna set up WSUS on my network so I don't have to download these things multiple times.

Updates don't seem to be taking that long to install on my SSD. Probably 5mins or so, but we're talking 295-300MB for me so no small install really.

I'm not sure if it's due to an application I used, or this update, so I'm asking here. (The application was "[url="http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1899865"]OblyTile[/url]".)

My IE icon on the Start screen is now the metro one, all the time. Previously, the icon would change between the desktop and metro versions depending on whether or not IE was the default browser.

Now, Nightly is my default browser, but the IE icon is still the metro version.

I'm not complaining about this, just curious if something in this batch of patches is the cause.

You should have received a lot more then that, are you sure they didn't auto apply last night? Check your Update History.
