To those of you (at home), who have Windows 8 based computers, please know that Microsoft will be soon releasing, to the general public, an upgrade to Windows 8, called Windows Blue (or Windows 8.1).
What is all this talk about Windows 8.1 Preview?
This past week Microsoft released the “preview version” of Windows 8.1, so that it can be tested and run in the wild by computer guys like myself to make sure it is polished enough to release to the general public.
Is this a good thing? You bet it is… The underpinning’s of Windows 8 is a really solid operating system, but Microsoft released it with changes that really caused a stir. Most of the stir was from what people were visually seeing on the surface, such as the computer no longer booted to the desktop; and, once they figured out how to get to the desktop, the Start Menu was no longer there. This upgrade will remedy these concerns and hopefully bring back that warm and fuzzy feeling that has literally taken home based computer users many years to get accustomed to.
