Windows 8.1 to be Released Soon for Old and New Users

Windows 8.1 to be Released Soon for Old and New Users

Recently, Microsoft has officially revealed a kind of huge news that is related to the latest operation system development for Windows devices. The news is no other else but the reveal of Windows 8.1 OS. This latest OS is already scheduled to be released in October this year. To be more specific, the time that is already designed by Microsoft is 17 and also 18 of October, 2013. The reason why there are two different release dates available is because 17 October is the time scheduled for all old users of Windows 8 OS to get the new OS for free. This OS can be downloaded directly from Windows Store. On the other hand, the 18th of October is the time for new users to be able to purchase the OS for the very first time.

So, what is actually the difference that can be found in this new Windows 8.1 if compared to the previous series? It is already mentioned officially that one of the huge changes available in this operation system is located in the tile look that is also the very basic special feature of Windows 8 OS. In the latest series of the operation system the tile is more various in sizes. Moreover, multiple tile sizes are the ones that can be used at once by the users. The change of this tile size is something that comes together with the return of Start button that seems to be looked for by quite a lot of Windows 8 users. The system is even better because users can personalize it in many ways they want. Other than that, this new system is the one that is far away more usable compared to the previous one. Besides, the integration between desktop and also start is much better too in this new OS.

Even if there are quite a lot of significant changes that can be found in this new Windows 8.1 system, users should be ready for some details found to be quite lacking in this system. Let us say that the RT system is, just like the previous one, still very slow in speed. For those who love to use computer with faster performance and can get easily annoyed with the slower one, it seems that upgrading to this new Windows OS is something that should be considered quite deeply. Even the tile functions look very great, it is so bad that the apps compatible to the tile are still very limited. Moreover, it is already known that there is no third-party app available for this operation system yet. For the basic new system, the lacking that is found is located in the difficulty to get used to the new changes available in this new OS.
