    When will you upgrade to 8.1?

    Just curious when you plan to upgrade? While I have a suspected bug in the way IE10 works with Win8, it is only a minor annoyance. I'm thinking of waiting until a few updates are done to fix the new bugs that I'm sure it will contain.

    I will wait a while myself to do the upgrade, since Windows 8 works fine and there is no big hurry.

    I voted in a month or so, but that has a catch. I currently run W7 and are pretty happy with that, everything works pretty well. I am not a feature or performance hunter, as perhaps others may be, but I do of course recognize new useful stuff and adapt to them, in time.

    Already did, the minute after it leaked, not a single issue to report.

    I'll likely upgrade my work laptop to it almost immediately as a test to see what to expect with others.

    At home...I guess I will have to upgrade to 8 first...I'm still happily on 7 there.

    I will be getting the pro 64-bit oem version. I'm currently running 7 pro but after watching & reading several reviews on 8.1 I will be making the switch before this year is out.

    If they release an ISO for fresh install I'll update immediately. If I have to update via the Store, I'll wait and see how others are doing first. If it isn't going so well I'll wait until all the bugs are worked out. I'm not going through the torture.

    Edit: I was on my phone using the 8F app, so I didn't know this was a poll. I'll have to vote "or so". I don't think it'll take a month to work out the bugs if it gets to that.
