    When I started my download it said it was going to take about 8 minutes. At this point I am 302 mb in and it says 72 minutes remaining. I'm curious about what kind of download speeds everyone got.

    I didn't time it or anything, but I'd say about 15-20 minutes for me.

    I'm downloading 888mb of updates through software update right now.

    Mine says "About 63 hours."

    458KB in after 5 minutes.

    I have also been waiting for a long time and its still going. Now of course they likely wouldn't, but if they had a p2p seed going this wouldn't be a problem for anyone.

    When I upgraded iTunes last night, it started going really fast than about 5 minutes later it went to 3 minutes remaining to 45 minutes. So I closed it and restarted and it came down in 6 minutes or so.

    Right at launch mine started at 1MB/s but now it won't get past 70kb/s download speed. 2 hours remaining. Has been 2 hours remaining since the 50mb mark. Now I'm at 300.

    That was my first thought. It would also greatly lessen the load on their servers. There could even be an opt-in for background seeding during normal use for us good samaritans out there.

    Why are some people like 73 hours etc? that's crazy

    Mines 83 mins left and I started about 10mins ago (when it said 2 hours, but clearly half an hour hasn't passed in 10mins)
