    On the other hand, I think waiting a while to install 8.1 would be a good idea.

    I think it is supposed to be free to current users of Win 8.???

    Anyway, waiting a bit to see how buggy it may be would be good.

    Windows 8.1 will be free to ALL W8 license holders (although I haven't yet seen any mention of whether W8 Enterprise will be included in this).

    One thing though you can't really complain legitimately about in Windows 8 -- It's NOT BUGGY and those who say it is must certainly either have some really strange hardware that exists perhaps only on the outer moons of Jupiter or have failed to install their system correctly.

    I don't think Windows 8 is buggy.
    Runs good for me.
    I just like to wait a bit even with Windows Updates.
