Good that it's a feature update - not just a bug fix update.

Wow ... Apple must really trust its new data centers to have two larger activations like this on the same day ... hope it works!

What about system updates.
* Graphics glitches
* 2 Monitor issues some people have at boot time (freezes at blue screen)
* Issues where background images dissapear when coming out of screensaver or sleep. (if you do a "killall Dock" in the terminal it comes back, but shouldn't have to do that)
* I'm sure there's general perfocmances that could be gained.

I'm all for new features, but I'm even more interested in under-the-hood, functionality, glitches, performance, etc...

Downloading now. Moving quicker than I expected. I really expected the Apple Servers to be swamped today.

I'll let you know in a bit. Updating my 17" right meow and then I'm headed to 4 hours of class, normally I'd be at ~60% by the end, I'll report in when I'm done and we'll see.
