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.

Just not the same hype and targeted audience. Btw Apple's update have more of an upgrade, with added functionalities, not "just" a compilation of security fixes/patches/UImod to restore usable behaviors after badly anticipated users' anger.

Keep in mind that if Windows 7 machines were still sold, they would surely outnumber Windows 8's.

Give me a shout when the oldest Windows 8.1 setup is not from 2003 and it probably runs alright.
