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.
