I am one of the many Windows Phone users who have installed Microsofts Preview for Developers, and thus am on Windows Phone 8.1. Since I live in Norway I am still waiting for Cyan for my Lumia 1020. The most recent development on that front is that contrary to what Microsoft said earlier, I might have to reset my phone to the previous version of the OS in order to get Cyan due to a bug encountered by some business users using Bitlocker encryption while on the Preview for Developers. Microsoft is working on a fix, but at the moment the only way to get Cyan (when it becomes available) is to go back to Windows Phone 8.0.
Today Microsoft started their global rollout of Update 1 to Windows 8.1. The update, which basically makes Windows 8.1 more user friendly for traditional desktop users, are being made available through Windows Update.
The update itselft is tailored to the type of machine you have, it being a desktop, a laptop (touch or no touch) or a tablet. On my current laptop, which is no-touch, the total download was around 900 MB, and the update process took approximately 10 minutes total.
