    The update is only 136 mb for my iMac and 321 mb for my MacBook Pro.

    Wierd, that's kind of a big difference.

    I dont know if this has happened to anyone else, but after the update on my macbook, my desktop is locked up. I cant open up any of the folders or files on my desktop. i can still cmd click and my dock still lets me launch apps.
