Windows 8.1 Roll Out Starts Today
Peter Donnell / 4 years ago
Starting today at 4am PDT, Windows 8.1 will begin rolling out as an optional update to all Windows 8 users. It has been a long time coming, or at least it has felt like a long time, that Windows 8 will get a major overhaul and re-fresh, and I’m sure many users of the OS are eager to see what the new update has to offer.
Windows 8 has not done well in terms of popularity, although personally I think it’s hard to figure out why. Many people didn’t like the new tile interface, but I also personally believe many just didn’t give it a chance, or at the very least only focused the bulk of their attention on that aspect of the OS. I know a few (yes, only a few) who are more than happy with and what time I’ve spent on it myself, I didn’t have any issues with it. However, just because I think it’s a good OS, doesn’t mean there isn’t room for improvement and Microsoft are going to be adding new built-in apps, new UI changes, better search technology and more.
Will you be updating to Windows 8.1 as soon as you can? Or do you think this new update will be reason enough for you make the leap to Windows 8 in general? Personally I do like Windows 8, but there is really no major reason why I would need to leave Windows 7 right now… so I’m not going to, nor am I the only one who thinkst his way and that is the biggest issue Microsoft are facing at the moment.
