Windows 8.1 Update 1 Review

Recommended Posts

Supersite for Windows published a review on Windows 8.1 Update 1

It's fair to say that much of the surprise behind Windows 8.1 Update 1 was ruined by leaks, including the final version of the code, which has indeed been floating around out there for several weeks. But no matter: Update 1 matters, and is the clearest indication yet that Microsoft remains committed to listening to feedback and writing the wrongs of the original release of Windows 8.

Looks like they reviewed the leaked "spring update" and not the final version because there was no mention of the start menu.

Generally, I find Paul's reviews a bit wider on perspectives than the rest of those dumba$$ Reviewers - he has done quite a reasonable job, yet again.

However, he has not reviewed the latest release - the giveaway is his reference as Update 1 instead of just Update.

BTW, FYI - the Start Menu has not been deployed on even the latest Update - it's yet to be deployed later, this year.

You got a reference to the info that says we will have a start menu later this year or are you just assuming?

It’s back! Today at its Build conference, Microsoft announced that the company is returning the traditional start menu to Windows. The company is also adding the ability to run Windows Store apps in their own Windows. The updates will be available not in Windows 9, as previously rumored, but in a future update to Windows 8.1.

In a brief demo, Microsoft’s VP of operating systems showed a desktop screen with Windows Store apps running in their own windows and a traditional Start Menu open on the desktop. However, the Start Menu also contained tiles for Windows Store apps.

Microsoft has announced that the Start menu will be coming back to Windows 8.1 and showed off what it will look when it arrives later this year. This is a huge win for those of you who have wanted a Start menu on Microsoft’s latest version of Windows, and it will likely silence some critics of the platform. Another new feature that will be coming is that you will be able to run modern apps in a windowed environment too. The Start menu will be returning to Windows in a future 8.1 update, which is in contrast where we heard that the Start menu would come to Windows with Windows 9.

When you couple the Start menu with the Windows 8.1 update that was announced today as well, Microsoft is doing a lot for the platform in terms of making it user friendly for mouse and keyboard users and for those who do not enjoy the modern environment.

Yea I noticed that too.. I am wondering if they are going to remotely uninstall the MS patches that we got that night then re-install there new patches to implement the start menu like the photos show.

Or is it going to be a totally new MS patch to add new code to the kernel?

I'd bet on this one as the right answer. :)

My only hope is that they don't hard-code their Start Menu, when there are options - everybody can go home with a happy feeling.

The latest Service Pack (SP2) is 8.1 Update - not 8.1 Update 1.

This article which has been posted is useless as it's a review of an older version. - understood, Mr. Twisted English?

No, you are Mr. Twisted English. I'm Mr. Simple English.

Now, I'm getting confused. Infact, you are making me :dunno:

Ok, answer few questions -

Q.1 - What is releasing on April 8th?

Q.2 - If this is the SP2 for 8.1, when the hell is it that the SP1 released?

Q.3 - 8.1 is SP1 of 8 and 8.1 update 1 is SP2 of 8, is that it?

Q.4 - What is the size of Windows 8.1 update 1 pro VL x64 iso?

It's the RTM which may / may not undergo last minute change/s before being released.

The one that was released to MSDN is supposed to be checked out, by select subscribers before it's released to Manufacturers. In the meanwhile, it's deliberately leaked to the general public and in those 6 days of testing, Microsoft receives a lot of general feedback, from almost all walks of society.

Ok, answer few questions -

Q.2 - If this is the SP2 for 8.1, when the hell is it that the SP1 released?

Q.3 - 8.1 is SP1 of 8 and 8.1 update 1 is SP2 of 8, is that it?

Windows 8 = Base

Windows 8.1 = SP1

Windows 8.1 Update = SP2

Ok, answer few questions -

Q.4 - What is the size of Windows 8.1 update 1 pro VL x64 iso?

Now, how about you move your lazy non-comprehending butt just a little bit, to find out for yourself (you won't attain nirvana on this thread.)
