Microsoft has announced that Windows 8.1 will be released on October 17th, 2013. Specifically, 4 AM Pacific time.
This is good news for many Windows 8 users who have found it difficult to transition to the new interface. I will say again right here, I really like Windows 8. However, for the average user, it can be cumbersome to learn. It is not intuitive.
So, here is a list of improvements:
1. Boot-to-Desk, instead of the Start Menu with all the tiles. Yeah!
2. Share a background between your Desktop and the Start Screen.
3. The ability to torn off the “hot corners” access to charms and apps.
4. Internet Explorer 11, with side-by-side browsing of sites.
5. A bunch of new apps
Kind of a measly list of upgrades, but I think enough to make the user experience a bit more friendly. If you area Windows 8 customer of mine, expect to get a reminder from me to upgrade after it comes out. I will help with the process.
