Less than a year ago we were preparing to launch Windows 8, which introduced our vision of highly personalized mobile computing. And here we are today announcing the global availability of Windows 8.1. Windows 8.1 demonstrates our commitment to continuously improving the product to create a richer customer experience. We are excited to have customers start updating their devices today and getting to experience new Windows devices this holiday season.

Out now for free for everyone with Windows 8.

- Windows isn't the only one ripping out features - think stock Android as well. (SD cards, support for non-standard bluetooth game controllers, CIFS, etc)

Wait... Android is getting crappier too? Why is the world going insane?!

*sigh* I guess that's just another reason to be glad that I'm waiting for the world of featureful, free smartphone OSes to catch up with the maturity level of Desktop Linux before considering a phone.
