It took a little over an hour to complete and now I feel distinctly alone. While upgrading, I made choices that the average user is going to make and already I am regretting some of them.
- Express settings.. Was it this choice that forced me into having to sign on with my Microsoft account? Probably, but I didn’t want to use that account.
- I also accepted using SkyDrive as the default save location, and I haven’t found out how to reverse the choice yet.
- The Homegroup was blitzed.
- Password history for a variety of websites has been wiped
But, Start 8 still works..
Not too sure about the crashes after hibernation. They might still happen. I will know more tomorrow on that subject. The critical updates are being processed as I type, and everything else appears to be working. I may at some point in the near future do a clean install and avoid using my Microsoft account..
Anyway, no big claims yet as it is is still early days, and now time to reboot after the updates..
