I know a lot of folks are eager to find out when they will be able to get Windows 8.1. I am excited to share that starting at 12:00am on October 18th in New Zealand (that's 4:00am October 17th in Redmond), Windows 8.1 will begin rolling out worldwide as a free update for consumers on Windows 8 through the Windows Store. Windows 8.1 will also be available at retail and on new devices starting on October 18th by market. So mark your calendars!

Fcuk the 8.1 pseudo-bait-and-switch update. Seems that Microsoft is determined to flush money down the toilet. Ballmer, Larson-Green et al. are frustratingly incompetent.
