    what rfruth said ,and what I will add .

    the article is saying that if you didn't update your win8.1 to win8.1.1,[also know as the spring 2014 update] on April 8th ,then you will have to do so before you will be able to get the may 13th updates.
    the blog never should have mentioned XP in my opinion ,because it not the same ,they stopped working on xp ,so no more updates ,they did not abandon win8.1 or stop working on making win8 different and or a better secure OS ,so not the same circumstance in my ever so humble option

    Thanks for your replies. I guess Forbes is a little late on the update as it's been reported for sometime now. Can you tell me if I should need to format in the future, after the May deadline will I be able to get updates for 8.1 ?
