Windows 8.1 Release
News - General Technology News
Friday, 18 October 2013 08:46

This update has been issued for general release. It does have certain advantages, for example it installs a Start button (not in the same sense as an XP Start button but it does have links to some of those features) and it allows you to boot straight to Desktop.  On the downside, it tries to encourage you to use cloud computing more, wanting you to use SkyDrive and appears to insist upon a Microsoft account.  Many people are encountering problems during or following the installation of this update.

In the opinion of Alien Technologies, at the moment, we would recommend that you DO NOT attempt to upgrade to 8.1 especially if you machine is a business critical machine.
