Windows 8.1 is here.
Those are words PC users have been waiting to hear since Windows 8.0 was released last year to a flurry of complaints about the operating system being too confusing. Some say the new, improved 8.1, is much more than just a fraction of a difference...
Seth Porges a tech expert, says Windows 8.1 takes all problems from window 8.0 and improves them. "They listened to users and tried to deliver" he says.
The first thing you'll notice is the start screen. It has everything you use and care about the most. The new system has what experts refer to as a 'tablet feel.' Windows calls it the 'metro interface.'
No matter what you call it, users seem to think it's easier to figure out and has some useful and fun features
“I think the coolest thing about 8.1 is being able to run simultaneous apps side by side on the same screen” Porges said.
One thing they've improved is the all apps screen. Just swipe up and see all of the apps on your PC.
But will the improvements sway those loyal Apple devotees? Our tech expert says it's highly unlikely.
“People who use macs are not going to switch to Windows just as people who use Windows are not going to switch to Apple.”
With the new Windows operating system, experts say you get more than on any work or play device.
