    The Windows team has released Windows 8.1 and Windows RT 8.1 to hardware partners. Windows 8.1 is a significant update, delivered in a very short time frame, which continues the vision set out with Windows 8.

    It will be interesting to see if that works out for Microsoft. If it ends up having a lot of bugs in it, the short release cycle could backfire on them. It's a given there will be some, hopefully its very few and no major issues. Just brace yourself for a rash of upgrades gone bad when it hits the store, and the inevitable, "now what do I do" posts.

    In other words, the vision of, "How quickly we can see Micro-PowerPuffGirls suffer 100% Bankruptcy"?

    Well it was made clear and posted about a lot, which is also why I haven't run it on my production machine yet. Running it through VM.

    On the negative side, since I rarely go into VM, I've not played with 8.1 like I have with 8 being on my laptop.

    Kind of sucks you have to reinstall the OS for this though. On the flipside Microsoft did warn people.

    as long as the warned people realized what it meant to have to refresh win8 ,all will be good
