    Post Familiar w/ Windows 8.1??

    Whilst I see things said implying Windows 8.1 is not a big deal and while this article does not focus a lot on the cute & pretty End User stuff, it, still, might be good for people to read it, again. Might go a ways towards having a certain (fuller) appreciation for Windows 8.1

    Cheers,

    Gads! I hate to read.
    It was a lot simpler to just download the ISO, install the program on a spare hard drive and run it.
    It runs just fine. I did install the obligatory "Classic Shell" and "Grant Admin Full Control".

    Like I said, "it runs just fine". But on my main PC, it runs no faster than my main OS, Windows XP-Pro-SP3.

    Ba Da Bump!

    Experience is truly the best teacher.

    Backup! Backup! Backup! GHOST Rocks!

    Correction; it is a choice not, an obligation!

    After reading the TechNet article, it appears to me that Windows 8 was the start of where Microsoft wanted to go with Windows, and that Windows 8.1 moves Windows a lot farther down that path.

    Possibly not an inaccurate take on things, @ all.
