The Windows 8.1 upgrade download is slow today. It starts out and has taken me almost 2 hours to download and I have a really fast connection.

So you start out in the Windows Store and see the screen below..

Upgrading Windows 8 to Windows 8.1

Then you click to update for free..

Upgrade-to-Windows-81-2

Then you start downloading

Upgrade-Windows81-3

And there you have it folks…

Still downloading.

It seems like there are a lot of people downloading this right now (to state the obvious)…

    My entire download/install process took about 2.5 hours. Maybe about half of that was the download.

    I think instead of downloading right now I’ll wait the ISO image tomorrow

  5. DUH! how many people is trying to download at the same time?

  6. Or…, come over to Africa and live with the fact that it will be a slow download by default. Really guys, perhaps commenting on the actual product would be better, yes its slow but we all cant have everything now can we.
