Windows 8.1 Launch
With new functionality for the Start button and separate experiences for desktop and tablet users, the Windows 8 update finally gives people what they want.
Windows 8.1 has now been out for a few months and is a freely downloadable update. Microsoft has already released what is the equivalent of a first Service Pack for it, Windows 8.1 Update 1.
The latter should already have landed automatically on Windows 8 systems via Windows Update; you need to have Windows 8.1 already installed beforehand.
So did Windows 8 fix what was wrong with Windows 8? And does it really required yet another update in the form of Windows 8 Update 1?
