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.

Ok, that's fair, yet if you really wanted new features, you had to install PowerToys that weren't shiped with SPs. You meant WGA, Security Essentials, pre-UAC, stuffs alike ?

Take a look at Vista and its SPs. Keep in mind Microsoft works in the OS field for quite a few years by now (something around 30) and they have enough background, experience, return to make the right choices.

I bet they have.
