    Another note: the charms are now active on whatever app you last interacted with when multiple apps are open.

    So presumably Windows 8.1 becomes a standard update soon ?

    It may not if people have to pay for it
    Non-system disk or disk error. Replace and strike any key when ready.

    It's a free update - which makes sense, as it's essentially a service pack.

    I thought they were going to charge for it - was that a rumour or did they change their minds?

    Must have been a rumour, I can't recall Microsoft ever officially saying it was a paid update.

    Windows 8.1 will be a Free update as long as you have Windows 8 already.

    If you dont have Windows 8 already you have to purchase it (8.1) should you want it.

    I see where Microsoft are coming from as I believe many including myself will agree the start menu has become rather antiquated by today's standards and is well overdue for a replacement. However I personally feel that the sharp angeled 'solution' dubbed metro is quite ugly, brutish and comes with limited power user functionality. I'd have rather they'd gone with something closer resembling that of the Ubuntu unity Launcher.
