Default Well, How Was Your Experience Downloading iOS 5?

"Apple customers worldwide are experiencing difficulties updating their devices to iOS 5. The culprit? Popularity. iTunes is having difficulty authenticating the iOS 5 update with Apple's servers, probably because so many people are trying to upgrade at once. Once iTunes fails to upgrade, it refers the user to an iTunes help page with the URL referencing "error=3200," and is so widespread that "Error 3200" is currently trending worldwide on Twitter. As we noted earlier, simply downloading iOS 5 was taking a long time, but the problem has become a comedy of error (codes)."

I didn't attempt it much last night, only about twice before I gave up, and found success this morning about 5am Pacific Time. Now, getting everything switched to iCloud was a different story. The picture above is all I kept getting once everything was installed on my iDevices and I was ready to make the move. Sounds like it may be tomorrow as a likely day for the final task. How was your experience this time? Better or worse than the last time you did it? Thankfully this wasn't released on iPhone 4S day or it would have been even uglier don't you think?
