The Final W-8.1 is out today through Microsoft store...
My W-8 upgrade to W-8.1 went without a hitch...
The upgrade saved all my W-8 apps, so nothing to reinstall... :yes:

Skully,

Let us know how you like it.

For me I might never update to this "free" version.

negatives. Sign up for MS Store
Take 10 hours or more for me to download the update each time I wish to re-install windows. Which for me can be once in six months or as many times as 4-5 times a month.

I don't see me doing this unless I pop for the Developers edition, which I think is a couple hundred. Grrrrr.

I downloaded in about 2 hrs. You have to have a Microsoft account for W-8 or W-8.1 it also works with Microsoft store. To early to say how I like W-8.1,
after some time and playing around a bit I'll post how goes... :wave:

I downloaded and installed it last night. Never lost any apps from Win8. Seems to be ok, alittle early to tell though.
