The update is solid. There are a lot of changes In the look and feel and it is awesome. Only problem is that the windows store is not opening at the moment. I get a message to try again later.
But anyway it sure is worth it!

Not really worth $19.
Yeah I can use AppStudio for free, but it allows max 2 sideloaded apps. With normal $19 developer account I can sideload up to 10 apps.

Or I can just wait for regular update much later.

WP is locked-down like a jail, it's ridiculous why they have to limit the number of apps you can sideload!

I got the update and I hate it -.- They are now forcing us to use the crap that they call "Facebook application". The address book, the pictures hub, the "Me Tile", it all now depends on that application being installed and running in the background. If you don't do that, you can forget about Facebook. For us who use it, it's a big deal (well, for me it is). Does anyone know why they did this? It was all so nicely integrated, why the hell did they do this now?

As for other stuff, I only noticed the notifications center thing and the tiles background image. I don't see Cortana anywhere (nor would I use it if I did), and all the other stuff is pretty much irrelevant to me. In fact, the Facebook app crap on the verge of pushing me to some other platform, the only thing keeping me is Nokia -.- Yes, pissed of right now -.-

But if you want to get the preview version now.. you need to be a developer or need to create a developer account in either Microsoft dream spark or through Microsoft app studio.. Then the update will be available for your phone
