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.

So you take decisions for consumers ? That's sounds dictatorship to me. The consumer can ONLY take the right decision if provided with the right information beforehand. Lockdown and secrety ain't good fuel for making the right moves, otherwise spying and reverse engineering wouldn't have been used in the first place.

Your comments are siding up Linuxian's openess motos, if one cannot trust closed sourced software from a private company.

It is called requirements engineering and historically consumers have been bad at actually specifying what they want.
