    Is it viable to install Windows 8.1 on a laptop from 2021?

    Yes I'm aware of Wifi adapters but they take up a USB port and modern laptops have limited USB ports compared to ones from the Windows 8 era due to the emphasis on the thin and light design pioneered by the Macbook Air.

    The sticking point with laptops is wifi drivers as the wifi module has no drivers for 8.1. You can get away with having no wifi on a desktop.

    Flash Removal in Windows Updates

    Classic Shell isn't there by default on a freshly installed Windows 8 PC. You add that after setting up. So by default when you first set up your PC it'll boot you into the Metro UI.

    Flash Removal in Windows Updates

    The difference is 8.1 boots you directly into the desktop when first setting up. Btw does the weather app still work in 8?
