Some of my first impressions
Install was slow.. the actual download/prep didn't take long but the post/boot/clean process was a snore. But, it worked without any issue and updated fine
I must say, its *MUCH* improved - especially with the store. Performance is very useable, the tremendous lag that would happen when trying to install or select apps is gone! Now when you choose download it just takes a second for the UI to come back and you're back to exploring.
Love the small icons and easier organization. No more accidentally dragging apps all over the place just swiping
The best browser experience on any tablet I've owned period. Fast, easy to use and well, fast. I need to find some webgl sites to explore and mess around with further. Facebook, twitter, neowin, google, bing, oracle, Microsoft et all al format and display quickly. Scrolling through large pages is absolutely SMOOTH
My volume definitely seems louder, not sure if its tweaked or just a different driver or whatever it may be, but its louder..
MUCH faster, a little bit easier, will need some getting used to.
Absolutely great, they're really kicking butt with these. Hope to see them on the WP8 platform.
Settings is *MUCH* more capable, much easier to navigate with sorted categories.
Skydrive: Works as advertised! Nicely nestled in / baked in by default.
Hmm, hope to give an update tomorrow, but generally the consensus from my perspective is that the Surface RT definitely got a new soul with this update, its performing really well.
oh, oddly enough. I wiped out space to get 10gb free and after update I have 12.1 gb free. Somehow i got more space..This is with a few profiles and lots of apps installed. Maybe it just cleaned up cached data from apps during migration, but thought that was odd
