I went from build 1909 to 2004 yesterday & it took a very long time to install, like 5-6hrs...on a 3yr Dell laptop, i7, 16gb RAM, SATA hard drive...This update must be YUGE!  Just wanted to let you know before you update to that version that it might take awhile & probably best to do it overnight while sleeping :)

Very nice, Hi5!

    I read that there is a bug in 2004 that may use regular defrag on SSDs, killing their lifespan. I disabled Disk Defrag, just in case.

    I installed 2004 on 27-June, downloading and installing took a very long time, but the "reboot" I think took less than 30 minutes.
