Updating done in 10 minutes or so. Everything went smoothly. :)
Glad to hear your update was smooth.
I've been toying with getting a WP7, given I'm a silverlight developer it would be a pretty nice way to identify apps that I needed, and get writing them. However I've heard that there's no way to side-load an app onto the devices (as in install something that's not published to the app hub). Is that true?
Yea, I think the only way to test your apps (without obviously releasing them to the public on Markerplace) is to use the emulator that comes with the WP developer tools.
Microsoft said that they'll allow developers to transfer apps to their devices without publishing them, but when that will happen, they didn't exactly made it clear.
