Windows Microsoft has released a video showing off some of the features coming to Windows 8.1. I must say, the new features all look like great additions (the new search looks awesome), but I'm much more interested in performance - the huge bottleneck for anything related to Metro. In addition, as part of the Windows 8.1 update, Windows RT users will get an ARM version of Outlook. Not that I care, but I'm sure some business users do.

Not for me

I had Win8 on my laptop for about 3 months. Perhaps I'm set in my ways but with the bitter taste it left I'm turned off for anything higher than Win7. I can't help but not be excited for 8.1.

Initially Windows 8 is a usability clusterf*ck, for a traditional desktop role at least. However, with some coaxing it can be made it to work, and the transition takes about a week or so.

However, IMO, this is one Windows version with basically no value proposition going for it, specially RT. I get it for "free" via our organization, so it is easy enough to put up with...
