Not very excited about Windows 8? The latest iteration of the Microsoft operating system has been met with disappointment by many who were put off by its convoluted use of a mixed tablet/desktop style design. Microsoft has taken a huge hit for it, in fact, as adoption has been less than spectacular, but now they’re hoping to fix that with a free update to they’re calling Windows 8.1. Associated Press write, Ryan Nakashima, gives his take on the upcoming release.
“There’s also speculation that Microsoft could show off a new, smaller version of its Surface tablet computers. One of the new features in Windows 8.1 is the ability to work well on smaller-screen devices.”
