It seems that Windows 8.1 will be a free upgrade for all Windows 8 users. I know quite a few people who might be thinking that hell is nearing freezing point. :)
Jury is still out in regards to what exactly Windows 8.1 brings but in all likeness it will be to Windows 8 what Windows 7 were to Vista. There might be few minor internal features but I suspect that most of work will be done on customer facing front.
My wishes include combined search for Apps/Settings/Files, booting directly in desktop mode, and removing hot-spot from upper-left corner. Yes, I am easy to please. :)
