    Yes, of course. The download is taking too long. It is 1,7GB big and apparently the Apple servers are experiencing issues. My 100Mbit connection shouldn't be the issue (but you never know)

    Mines taking a while on my 40Mbit connection - 38 minutes remaining.

    Edit: The time is actually going up! Apple servers taking a hit.

    Great deal :)

    I'm leaving work a little early so hopefully an hour from now I'll be downloading and the servers will be straightened out.

    There haven't been to many aesthetic changes since DP1. I'd be very happy with some tweaks, and a few apps could still definitely use the dropping of skeuomorphicism. We'll see :cool:

    There are tools out there that will do it for you. Not very hard in the terminal. To be honest, if they gave us the 2D look on the bottom I'm pretty sure they would do exactly what you would do in the terminal they'll just have some panel check box for it.

    Currently installing. Anyone want me to check anything specific on my rMBP?

    That's great, but the point is for it to be the default dock or for it be an option like you said.

    DL speed difference must be localized. On my 25Mb connection I finished downloading the 1.72GB update in under 8 mins.

    I doubt it is in the OS developer previews but if there is a newer version of iTunes ...please check if we we can view purchased apps/books from iCloud instead of having to download them to view them in our library.

    Also, if you are able, if iTunes can finally sync podcast lists with their podcast app on iOS.

    ..again, I doubt we'll see these things from 10.9 developer previews and more likely in the actual iTunes betas recently released but I thought I'd still ask.

    ----------

    Considering they moved from 2D to 3D ..I doubt it'll become the default again (I could be wrong). Though I do find it strange they don't allow for a toggle between the two. That part has always made no sense to me.

    In 10.9 they removed the terminal command so it's no longer possible to have a 2D dock on the bottom.

    That's... interesting. Wonder why? Does it clash with animations or something? Oh well. I'm sure there will be third party tools out there to bring it back. Replace the dock with their own custom one.

    So freaking excited for this. Too many times while something is compiling or a long process is running I like to open a book and read a few pages.

    I think it wasn't intentional. They redid how the dock is drawn now (it's no longer images you can edit) so in the process they might've broken it.



    Well, they went from 3D to 2D on iOS. It should go away if Ive is still bashing his skeuomorphism-be-gone stick around.

    Looks about how you'd expect. It's not working very well so I can't see my purchases.

    There's a retina link. I don't want to post it inline.

    My install got interrupted briefly. With about 11 mins to go, the "About xx minutes", under the blue install progress bar, disappeared for about 3 mins then appeared again at 11 mins left, looks like it's progressing normally after that. Weird.
