"This will take a while"

Yep. You got that right ...

Fortunately the Surface isn't: and despite having only the one screen it's working just fine. I still can't connect to the dev SQL instance, but since that's updating ATM it'll have to wait anyway.
Suspicion is falling on the differences between Win 10 Home (Wookietab, worked fine) and Win 10 Pro (Surface, can see the instance but not connect to it).

It's a very capable little machine, much more so than I thought, and despite the silly battery connector it seems to last OK - nowhere near the Wookietab, but that had 11Ah instead of 5.5Ah and a more feeble processor to work with ...
I like the Type Cover, it's nice to work with even if the key travel is understandably short.

[edit]
So it's sat at 27% complete for half an hour.
I grab the Surface, and Google "Win 10 1903 update stuck at 27%" up comes the page, I start reading ... and the desktop reboots: immediately up to 60%.
I think MS is "being amusing" today ...
