While there were patches waiting when we all first got our Microsoft Surface RT, today was the first “Patch Tuesday” since it’s release, and it was invited to the party. It brought a firmware update and 7 other patches, although one of those was a Windows Defender definition update and probably shouldn’t count.
Some bloggers and others were reporting a performance improvement. Personally, it seemed the same for me. My slowest app (MetroTwit) is still frustratingly slow but now crashes much faster. I don’t blame the patch for this as MetroTwit was a devil of an app from the time I installed it.
SurfaceGeeks.net has a thread going to discuss the patching experience and results. Check it out before you update and add your two-cents after the update.
