Mark your calendars for Windows 8.1!

Quote:
I know a lot of folks are eager to find out when they will be able to get Windows 8.1. I am excited to share that starting at 12:00am on October 18th in New Zealand (thatís 4:00am October 17th in Redmond), Windows 8.1 will begin rolling out worldwide as a free update for consumers on Windows 8 through the Windows Store. Windows 8.1 will also be available at retail and on new devices starting on October 18th by market. So mark your calendars!



Windows 8.1 continues the vision we began with Windows 8 and is an example of our commitment to continuous innovation and improvement for our customers. And Windows 8.1 brings many improvements in areas like personalization, Internet Explorer 11, search which is powered by Bing, built-in apps including a few new ones, an improved Windows Store experience, and cloud connectivity with SkyDrive (and much more) that people will enjoy. If you havenít already, you can give many of the new features and improvements in Windows 8.1 a try with the Windows 8.1 Preview. Business customers can begin testing Windows 8.1 for deployment in their environments with the Windows 8.1 Enterprise Preview.

Now is a great time to buy a Windows 8 device in a range of different form factors like Microsoft Surface, the Acer Iconia W3, the Lenovo Yoga 11s, the Toshiba KIRAbook or the Dell XPS 18 . For students going back to school, we have Windows Chip-in which is a crowdsourcing program to help students and parents purchase a new Windows device for school. And the Windows Store Only at Best Buy store-within-a-store experiences will be launching throughout August and September, just in time for the back-to-school shopping season to check out all the latest Windows devices! If you buy a Windows 8 device today, you can look forward to the new features and improvements from Windows 8.1 in October.

Itís very exciting to be delivering Windows 8.1 to consumers just before Windows 8 celebrates its 1-year anniversary. You can expect to read more from us on Windows 8.1 leading up to availability on October 18th!

M$ had their chance with me on Win 8 and blew it. I've already committed to use Win 7 to its bitter end. I've already bought two retail copies of Win 7 Ultimate and one of Home Premium.

I've got 8.1 Preview in a VM right now.
I will give it another shot to see if I can get it to do what I want it to do, rather than it getting me to do what it wants me to do. I just need to find some time to play with it.

I might not be ready by October though!

I was toying with the idea of running the 8.1 preview in a VM but I don't think I can be bothered. I don't have any real intention of moving from 7 and it's more just out of curiosity after my one and only less-than-glamorous encounter with 8.

Yep,
I was really waiting for the full version release/ oem or retail and hoping for it before the price increase ?
Not sure if that will happen though
