    For the life of me I can't imagine what all they would include other than an almost entirely new OS for that size. I also heard erroneously however that the update would be available through the Windows Store. That apparently has been debunked. I think I will take the size with a little grain of salt though.
    Thanks John

    Some users cannot download 3GB. They will need to be able to get a DVD with the upgrade on it, or they will not be willing to upgrade.

    If it is 3GB it won't be downloaded in 15 minutes

    I have to question the accuracy of this article - it states that a Microsoft rep has posted in EightForums

    The link to EightForums ( http://www.eightforums.com/windows-8...tml#post393232 ) is from a user who alleges that a Microsoft TechSupport person told him that it was due then.
