Windows 8.1 RTM is already available for download following the leaks we’ve told you about all week, so many users are now running it on either laptops or desktop computers.
While 8.1 is clearly an important update for Windows
8, one that also brings back the Start button, some users still see it as an operating system that continues to be aimed at touch-capable devices, such as tablets or hybrids.
Opinions continue to be mixed on whether Windows 8.1 RTM
is a necessary update for the core operating system, with many consumers still thinking that sticking to Windows 7 or switching to Linux is a much better choice.
