After many months of rumors now we got the official word about the upcoming update of Windows 8.
Windows 8.1 is the result of the hard work of our engineers after getting your feedback of the first few months of enjoying Windows 8.
You can check more details at the official blog post:
I can't wait to start enjoying the new polish coat of this amazing OS and see how Microsoft, as a pioneer company, starts rolling frequent updates to keep Windows fresh and in line with the needs of millions of users around the world.
Some of the changes that I find more interesting are the new level of personalization, with a seamless flow from the start screen to the desktop. The more powerful search function, displaying results from multiple sources (the web, apps, files, SkyDrive, actions you can take) and, of course, the Start Button. I don't really miss the button, but it is a good sign for many that Microsoft is paying close attention to every comment from our dear users.
Let me know your thoughts on the subject and suggestions are always well received.
Exciting times my friend.
