Microsoft has announced at a conference in Boston today that from June 26th a preview version of the operating system that will replace the ‘failed’ Windows 8 will become available.
Named Windows 8.1, the operating system will be deployed as a free update for all Windows 8 users via the Windows Store. Originally rumoured to be called Windows Blue, the details of the improved OS have not been revealed at the conference or on the Windows blog.
What is known is that despite the controversy caused by Windows 8, Microsoft is standing its ground and not accepting defeat, praising the delivery of some great tablet products from a number of its partners. Microsoft have expressed that Windows 8.1 will be a richer experience for both tablet and laptop/desktop users.
