Windows "Windows 8.1 RTM will be available for OEM partners in late August. This means OEMs will be able to get the RTM bits and begin preparing devices with Windows 8.1 just in time for the holidays! We’ll have more details to share in the coming months for consumers and other customers on how to get Windows 8.1." So far, Windows 8.1 has been a massive improvement over Windows 8 on my Surface RT - except for the total system crashes (including shrieking sounds) Skype causes a few times per week.

The reason to force Metro on desktop users is quite clear: to force us to get used to it so we're more likely to use Windows Phone. End of story.

MS knows if they do not capture significant mobile space, they'll atrophy as desktops become a smaller part of the total market.
