    The Confusion Continues: Users Perplexed by Windows 8.1

    Microsoft has released Windows 8.1 to make the operating system a more familiar working environment and to tackle some of issues reported by users in Windows 8.

    It turns out that some consumers are still experiencing difficulties in figuring out the purpose of each option, while some are asking the same old questions that made Windows 8 such a controversial product.

    At this point, the official Windows 8.1 Preview forum thread is full of bug reports, and that's quite alright given the fact that the update is still in beta testing.

    On the other hand, there are a few questions that could make you raise an eyebrow, especially because Microsoft has promoted Windows 8. and 8.1 so much that you would expect everybody to know its purpose already.

    half of my software won't install, either a Net.Framework problem or certain version required, though everything worked in Windows 8 Pro. Netflix broken in Media Center, as is the My Movies plugin. Windows app store is a worse mess than before. Start icon is a hoax. WEI Windows Experience Index is removed. So many things simply wrong with it.

    I truly believe this is the worst thought out OS they have conceived.

    No major issues here. Works great on the desktop and Surface Pro. Better on the Surface as i've been waiting for the sizable app windows. Finally feels more complete.
