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.

Usual down-votes when it comes to basic software engineering.

Since you keep repeating at will how clueless I am, could you please provide me with a link to your personal blog where you explain every step to build a commercial grade operating system and the various implications, best practices ? Since you sounds so much knowledgable on the subject, let's share your insightful visions.

I don't really have or should do.

The fact is that you are making out like their should be zero defects, when we all know that it is impossible. In reality there is an acceptable number of defect that aren't critical or show stoppers ... they are minor bugs.

Making it out like Microsoft "have made mistakes" by the way you phrased that it makes it quite obvious you aren't experience in the software development process despite your protests.

Also high price ... are you kidding. It is f--king cheap.

Not basic software engineering, just a personal attack you edited. If that's so obvious, why not taking some minutes to explain, document, link sources instead to just point how people are so stupid not to understand such basic knowledge. Without backing your claims with valid and solid arguments, but empty and bold statements, you're the one bad looking here. Be a gentleman, keep your manners.
