    I have 8.1 on a Desktop and 3 Notebooks, no problems. One Notebook came with 8.1, the other two originally had earlier versions of Windows and I went with 8.0 first, no problem doing the 8.1 Update as long as the requisite updates were done first.

    Thanks Berton for the positive review. 8.1 finally forced itself onto my computer, your reply makes me feel less hesitant about 8.1.
