10.8.3 takes FOREVER to partition 3 TB (non-fusion) drive ... 3 hours so far and still stuck at about 75% complete???

STILL no hot plug for Tunderbolt in Bootcamp.. i use a thunderbolt monitor and have to restart my computer just before a meeting. Portability = FAIL

Huge load of garbage, I updated to this "Windows 8 friendly" version of OSX and it still won't install Windows 8 properly through BootCamp. The Windows 8 installer won't proceed because there is a USB drive installed, yet my rMBP has to rely on USB to install Windows. Not sure how they deem this version of OSX compatible with Windows 8 because it most definitely is not.

I've been running OSX and Windows 8 on my 2011 MBP since Windows 8 released without any problem. it's much easier if you use a 3rd party bootable cd/usb to boot up then choose windows 8 installation disc/usb
