Windows 8.1?

Discussion in 'Windows 64 Bit' started by Robert Carnegie, May 13, 2013.

  1. Since I'm following this group anyway, what will be in Windows 8.1,
    when will it be out, and how much will it cost to upgrade an existing
    device from Windows 8?

    ....64-bit version, that is (probably).

    I suppose it is probably too early to ask.

    I put off buying a Windows 8 device because I didn't like the look of
    Win 8 - I tried it on a spare netbook - then for other reasons I didn't
    do it yet, and now I'm wondering whether to wait for the next thing.
    But currently my "main" device is a slim 32-bit Windows 7 tablet with
    serious faults, so, my previous main device, quite a heavy 64-bit
    Windows 7 machine with a tablet mode, is still getting a lot of use.

  2. I have some news now, from "The Inquirer" and

    http://blogs.windows.com/windows/b/.../2013/05/14/windows-keeps-getting-better.aspx

    ....yes, that is what it says.

    Specifically: Windows 8.1 will be free to Win 8 users,
    through the Windows Store, with a public beta release
    near the end of June.

    So that's to look forward to, eh?

  3. You know as much as anyone does. We know it will be free, and we know that
    non-VL versions will update through the Store. And we don't know when the
    final version will actually be out, just that it should be ready in time for
    the holidays. And I can work that back to tell me we should have an RTM
    about the last week in August if we're going to see it on machines selling
    for XMas.
