Thanks Raymond, and yeah - I do know about mixing the premix a little thinner, which also help reduce the tiny air bubbles. Also agree with the the blue bucket compound, the green is just too soft.

Wolfgang, the hot mud is primarily to reduce the time it takes to do all the mudding, side benefit is the strength. Not too concerned about cracks above the door or window as using the long sheets eliminated any joints/seams there. I have only one 3 sided corner that might need a little build up, and disappointingly it's in the shower. But it's not too bad, a bit more than a 1/16th I think. The shower walls are impressively flat. The entire perimeter gets multipiece crown - and I'm still on the fence regarding taking the tile all the way to the crown.
