100% Complete. No issues.

I created a complete system backup via recovery to a flash drive. This OS is quite awesome now.

Also any other noticeable big changes?From what I understand the traditional start menu will be installed in a later update. For the most part this update was minor, but it did lower the hardware requirements for running it.

I really like the search capabilities as it was even able to find the manufacturers backup software for my laptop, which is on a hidden partition.
