If you have a Windows 8 computer, then your upgrade to Windows 8.1 is free. This is the latest version of Windows 8. This upgrade is also being delivered in a new way. It is coming down via the Microsoft Store and Microsoft expects therefore that ALL Windows 8 computers will be updated to the new version. They so much so expect this that they are withholding updates to Windows 8 and only publishing them for Windows 8.1. As the first example, Microsoft released Internet Explorer 11 to Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 but not to Windows 8.
The short story is that we need to upgrade your computer to Windows 8.1 and we need to do it soon. While it’s free to download, it is also a long slow process to complete. In fact it takes about two hours from end to end.
We’ve gone through and updated all of ours. They went off without a hitch so we’re optimistic that yours will too. Charley will be contacting all of you with a Windows 8 computer to schedule the time to perform the upgrade.
I’ll post some of the more interesting changes in Windows 8.1 is another blog once this project gets rolling.
