8.1 upgrade?

Recommended Posts

So I am assuming 8.1 upgrade is free for people who owns windows 8.. Has anyone upgraded theirs yet? How is it?

I have, whenever I hit the windows key a white box pops up not sure if thats because i have start8. But really I don't see the point in it since all they did was put the start menu b utton on the text bar when it's been at the right top the whole time.

It's not the update most of us who still love windows 7 wanted it to be, but I see no reason not to update at some point.  Here's a pretty good list I saw. A few little things are nice to me but I just did the update because why not?

Pretty much. I'd just stick with start8 Classic Shell and not worry about it.

I probably will until I see a better reason because...

...none of that interests me. Classic shell takes care of the two "improvements" they made for desktop users. It looks more beneficial to tablet users, like Android 3.0 was.

I hear leapmotion really does help improve a windows 8 experince, though a bit figgity right now.

'Looks' neat but I don't think it'd be as smooth or as trouble-free as it appears.

New hardware is never smooth.

well apart from adding the Start button, they have removed the rating system. and the the white box appearing on the Window key press is definitely due to the start8. I have been using 8.1 for a week now. Got the ISO, not the update.

I like the start button addition but Classic Shell already had that.  8.1 just made me have to download the new version of CS that was compatible with 8.1 so the Windows 7 start menu pops up rather than going to Metro.  It also defaults a lot of your saved settings which was a slight pain.
