    On 11/07/2012, I was able to download the Office 2013 update (to convert the Preview edition that came with Surface).

    Note that you will NOT find this update in the Metro Windows Update charm. You have to go to the Desktop Control Panel and do Check Updates there. It's a large download (over 500 Megabytes) and takes about 15 minutes after download for installation - so allocate some time.

    There was an update today for Xbox-Music addressing the issue of playback errors while streaming music in connected standby.

    I would suggest a reasonable charge on your Surface and maybe even an OS restart before applying the updates if you are not doing that regularly.

    I just updated the Office programs, and the tiles no longer indicate "preview" versions. However, the icons at the bottom task bar in the Desktop for the Office programs now are plain white boxes (no color or indication of which program they control). The "empty" icons still work, however. Any ideas as to what might have gone wrong?

    Can you delete them and put them back from the updated programs?

    Thanks for mentioning that the Office update does not come through the Metro Update charm.
    I was waiting and checking this every day. But of course I just checked the charms situation.
    And now that I've read your info I checked at the desktop update and here it is. Windows tells me that the update is as of 10/30/12 and today is 11/8/12.

    Thanks again.

    Windows update is out. I realized that while downloading updates and doing other things, I get considerable lag. That's from having 5 IE tabs out with max 5 apps. Guess Surface 2.0 should come out with 4 GB of RAM. Post any replies on updates changes that you see

    Aw: Surface Window Updates List

    After I've installed the updates, the overall speed has improved and I didn't noticed stutter while playing music from micro-sd while in standby so far.
