Well, it was bound to happen, but Microsoft has announced the upcoming availability of Windows 8.1. The date that this is all happening is 17th October 2013 at 7:00pm Singapore time. For those of you who already own a copy of Windows 8, the update will be free.
The updated version of Windows 8.1 will also be available at retail on the 18th of October, as well as on computers that you buy at retail come 18th October.
As Windows 8 has been universally panned *well almost, I don’t really get what the big fuss is about*, many have been looking forward to this latest update, which will bring among other improvements, the return of the Start Button. This development would probably provide most systems builders a collective sigh of relief, and may just be the push to get people to upgrade their computers from good ol’ Windows XP/Vista/7 to the latest and greatest version of Windows.
