    I updated from the store and had the water mark last night, but today it is gone. I think the water mark goes away after it activates.

    Win 8, (VM win7, XP, Vista)


    For those who fine the Water Mark annoying there are several programs for removing it out there in the wild. The one I use is "My WCP Watermark Editor." If you go to Google you may find more. . .Good Luck. . .

    I was planning on adopting the Windows 8.1 Preview and Windows Server 2012 R2 Preview as my main OSes for testing purposes and everyday usage, but I just tried to download them and everything is going very slow. Looks like they might not finish tonight. And my connection isnt slow either. Just a warning to those who are trying to download it today/tonight, the servers are pretty much overloaded from high demand.

    The watermark doesn't bother me, I was just curious.

    This is interesting however....

    I think your copy of windows was already activated. that's the reason it might have vanished.

    Oops..

    Rarely have time to visit EF. I found here W 8.1 is already on the heat.
    Just receive notification and download link from Technet last week. Downloading it now, hope I can spare some time to install it.
    Will see how it goes.

    Windows 7 Home Premium on 2 Windows 8.1 on 1


    Several 8.1 threads so not sure where this belongs but I am extremely disappointed in MS.

    I had the option for the $19.99 upgrade (I think that was the price) because I had purchased a Win 7 laptop shortly before Win 8 was released. Based on reviews and my research I decided I didn't want the OS as I didn't have a touchscreen computer so I didn't really see a lot of benefit. So now barely six months later they release 8.1 which seems to have resolved most of the issues non touch screen users had. But I can't get it without paying full price. MS should have some sort of discount available but of course they want. Yes I know it is my fault but still I am disappointed (and I am a MSFT shareholder too).

    After it is released in a few Months maybe they will offer an upgrade from 7 or XP at discount but you never know.
