8.1 upgrade?

Recommended Posts

Hmm I don't see Windows 8.1 when I go to store...

I was under the impression that anyone who purchased Windows 8 got this upgrade through the store.  Enterprise users being the exception.

Why would MS do that.........remove the rating system.  That was fun.  Anyway, 8.1 is a fine update, no reason not to update.  I disabled the  load desktop task before I updated to 8.1.  No problems. However, seemed to take a considerably long time to update, about 1/2 hour.

The likely reason it "just happened" for you was that you where running the 8.1 preview already so the undated makes sense.
