Update #1 – October 17th, 6:16am
Well the Update is supposed to arrive in the Windows Store anytime today, but it seems like the Windows Store just doesn’t want to load up for me, are you having the same problems? Is it possible that the demand is so high that the Store is overloaded?
So tomorrow at 4am PST Windows 8.1 will be available in the Windows Store, free to those that already own Windows 8. Trust me you will want to download this. It’s like going from Office 2007 to Office 2010, not quite like going from Windows Vista to Windows 7 though :)!
Sure the start button will return, but it will only take you back to the live tiles… I have a secret that will change all that though, I’ll blog about it in a couple days, I am going to let Windows 8.1 settle in for a bit!
Some cool features that you will get are :
- Live Tiles
- Side-by-side with sites and apps
- One Click calling – If you have Skype installed that is…
- Fast Fluid Reading
- Best for touch, mouse, and keyboard – Of course “touch” 🙂
- Enhanced for large screens
- and a whole lot of other upgrades to make your life easier.
Now I just have to get my hands on a Windows 8.1 Surface with a Haswell processor and I would be set!
