    Its too late.... Most who have tried 8.1 are cursing it as much as 8.
    That's funny lol. Oh well, I'll look forward to Microsoft next major release. Maybe you'll have more luck next time Microsoft. Windows XP=Good, Windows Vista=Bad, Windows 7=Good, Windows 8=Bad, Windows 9=(I think we all know this one.)

    It will be free as people won't want to spend money on an operating system upgrade once per year. And these changes from 8.0 to 8.1 are very small, so it's much more like a service pack than an operating system upgrade.

    I totally agree... " Microsoft: We’re 18 Months Behind with the Windows 8.1 Ecosystem "

    ... and they're STILL wasting time/money around 8.X

    I really don't know what Ballmer needs more to realize that MOST just doesn't like/want 8 and his "ecosystem".

    Come on, Microsoft... let's go with the next step (if they have one)

    The next step ( or maybe the one after that) are simple little devices we are expected to jab at while emitting a caveman grunt.

    Everything will be controlled for us - all from the clouds. We will do only what we are allowed, and will be paying subs or usage fees forever. We are not expected to understand any of that legacy ownership or privacy stuff.
