    Win 8.1 / System and Secuity/ Add Features to Win 8.1

    I have Win 8.1 and have seen this from my Control Panel / System and Security / then when that window opens u have a bunch of options to choose and one is called " Add Features to Win 8.1 / and under that in blue to click on it says " Get more features with a " new edition" of Window " ? I am curious about this but afraid to click on it not knowing what tricks MS has on the other side? What features and what " new editon " of Windows? What features? What new edition? And what Windows? Sounds awful ambiguious to me so I have left it alone but wonder if anyone knows what is behind this? What is the " New Edition"? Something of 8.1? I guess so cuz 10 isn't out yet??????
