    This popped up on my laptop about 2 hours ago.
    It stuck when it said Restarting. No circle of balls chasing each other, no percentage.
    It stayed that way for almost 20 minutes.
    After it Restarted, I Restarted it again. It popped up that I had a new update and to Restart Now. I did that and it appeared to go smooth and quickly.

    I average 236 Mbps. The updates took 45 minutes to download/install/restart on my Dell Vostro 5880. My wife's laptop took roughly one hour to do the same.

    Yep, desktop was much faster. 29 minutes total for it this morning. However, it had already downloaded the first part of the updates and told me to restart. The second part was New Features it says.

    This was an odd update. My new machine was a double-dipper (two update runs separated by a reboot) but my work machine was just a single scoop. The only difference is my work machine is Intel and my new machine is AMD.

    After both updates, I managed to grab a Defender update on a third pass.

    Why would they release a January patch again in March?

    Back to the topic of the thread, the free Windows 10 upgrade from earlier authorized Windows versions seems to still be working. I installed Windows 10 Pro on a Vista Business computer (not a VM) last week just for yucks. Because the machine had a Core Duo processor and 1GB of RAM, the performance was insufferable. Linux Mint 20.1 is running nicely on the machine now (much snappier than Vista Business with up-to-date browser support).

    I find it mind-blowing that I received the 2021-01 update today (after rebooting from the 2021-03 update).

    It blows my mind because the 2021-01 update was substantially to apply patches to Intel CPUs yet I'm running a Ryzen box.
