For S3 owners in UK, it looks like the JB rollout has started.

I received an OTA update this morning.

Seems OK.

Lots of new options in the SETTINGS menu, but nothing outstanding - much the same as JB 4.1.1 for NExus 7.

Google Now is now functional, long press on HOME button provides the option.

Perhaps cos I'm used to JB on Nexus 7 that it's not a biggie for me on S3  8)

I look forward to Verizon pushing JB to my S3 in their usual timely fashion, so I will post my opinion about next June. ::)

LOL @ Prime :))

That's fair enough CBers, it'll probably take some time getting used to with the way Sammy move things around and heavily theme the Android OS.
Is the update still got that Touchwiz Gingerbread feel to it? I was disappointed with the ICS update on my S2 because I liked the AOSP Holo ICS look and from GB to ICS it didn't feel like my phone has changed much except for the menu being in list format instead of grid and the settings changing. That's why my S2 it's running CyanogenMod, since the S2's ICS update I moved more into custom ROM's and am now running CM10.
