Windows "Today at the JP Morgan Technology, Media & Telecom Conference in Boston, Tami Reller shared with the audience that the update previously referred to as 'Windows Blue' will be called Windows 8.1 and will be a free update to Windows 8 for consumers through the Windows Store." They really didn't have much of a choice, but good news anyway.

Some people won't get it anyway ;) They have that judgmental, black and white, 0/1 attitude: "troll or not-troll".

Really. TBH I would have found it bloody hilarious if they charged another €30 euros again for the upgrade just to see everyone foaming at their mouths. When MacOSX has a similarly short release cycle these days and charges a similar amount but makes the expensive hardware obsolete that is still working perfectly fine and capable of running the OS.

Just saying.
