Hi all,

This week's poll question is about news that Microsoft has released a download of Windows 8.1 Preview. Discuss here if you plan on trying out this preview before the official version is released, and, if you like, the poll results themselves.

Thanks!
Justin

Will wait for the final and hope any bugs are fixed.

Not sure that the changes bother me much as it only appears to give a start button and the ability to go direct to the desktop. Having organized both the start menu and desktop my own way, the final will probably be installed "just in case" but the new options ignored unless something particularly useful is included.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

There's a lot more changes than just those cosmetic one. Probably the most significant will be the way that Skydrive is now integrated into the OS. Windows 8 is good but 8.1 promises to be a significant improvement.

Thanks for the info. I'm not one for Skydrive stuff but hopefully I can either ignore or disable it.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
