    What we know so far about the upcoming Windows 8.1 Update


    What we know so far about the upcoming Windows 8.1 Update 2 and Windows 9

    Windows 8.1 Update 2 (or Windows 8.2 as some people are calling it) and Windows 9 are the two big upcoming updates to the Windows operating system. We've heard rumors, we've all read reports, and we've all seen the leaked information. So when are these two updates set to arrive? Let's recap what we know so far.

    Agree. Come what may!
    Nonetheless, let's NOT begin another 'Start Menu' soap opera!

    Well, i disagree, it is not a very good os, it has many, many things, that are bad compared to windows 7, not just start screen. It feels like you are no longer in control of any action, there is so many automated things that you cant turn off, its ridiculous... It feels like ms wanted you to feel too safe, so they put YOU in a prison instead of bad things...

    It's as good or better than Windows 7 in my books. I haven't had any problems doing what I want when I want. It can take some time to find some settings but they are there if you look hard enough. There are always things to learn with a new OS.

    Ugh, another "control freak" LOL ? Most of those "out of control" things can be bypassed anyway but they are there for OS safety everybody is clamoring for. Having cake and eating it is not compatible with each other.

    Since none of the replies seem to address the original topic, I'll try: From the referenced link it appears we know nothing about the upcoming 8.1 update (8.1.2) except that it is coming.

    Scuttlebutt, just Scuttlebutt I'd say but you know the old one with "smoke and fire" ?
    Old M$ (and many others) trick, "leak" some news, listen to what people say and do the opposite.

    No, i'm apparently the only intelligent life form here, that puts quality of life first and is living how he wants, not dancing by the song "you kids do as microsoft says", and understands, that you will die in real world ten times, before someone will even try to mess with your virtual life, "oh no, they hacked my pron collection, what im gonna do...".
    And those out of control things cannot be bypassed, because you dont even know what im talking about, all you can think of is that hidden start button, that no one has found yet ...
