« on: October 15, 2013, 10:07:25 pm »
Windows 8.1final version (RTM) will be available for public onOctober 17th. Windows 8.1 will be available for download via Windows Store on 4:00 AM October 17th and will be available at retail and on new devices starting October 18th.
Windows 8.1 RTM Schedule
Now Windows 8.1 release is just around the corner and the question comes are you ready for Windows 8.1? Are you ready to switch to Windows 8.1? If you are already using the free Windows 8.1 Preview version in your computer, you are most probably ready for Windows 8.1 RTM as its the final version of Windows 8.1 and will contain bug fixes and updates to make it stable and secure.

If you are using Windows 8in your computer, you should definitely upgrade to Windows 8.1 RTM. Windows 8.1 is quite similar to Windows 8 in looks. You'll not face any difficulty while using Windows 8.1 if you are already using Windows 8. Windows 8.1 is actually an update for Windows 8 so it'll make your Windows experience better and more user friendly. Microsoft has fixed many Windows 8 annoyances and problems in Windows 8.1 such as missing Start button, annoying hot corners (including Charms Bar), inability to shut down or restart your PC, direct boot to Start Screen, etc, so you should upgrade to Windows 8.1.
Windows 8.1 = Fix (Windows 8) <=>  Windows 7 = Fix (Windows Vista)

Windows XPandWindows Vistausers will not be able to upgrade to Windows 8.1. They'll need to install Windows 8.1 on a different partition or remove previous Windows from your computer and install fresh Windows 8.1.
Windows 7users will be able to upgrade to Windows 8.1 but you'll need to reinstall all 3rd party software. Your personal documents and files will be safe.
Now lets talk about thecost! Windows 8.1 will be absolutely free for Windows 8 users. So if you already have Windows 8 in your computer, you can download and install Windows 8.1 absolutely free. Other Windows users will need to purchase Windows 8.1 from Microsoft website or local store as mentioned here.
Now you might be thinking whether your computer will support Windows 8.1 or not? Don't worry! If your computer can run Windows 7 or Windows 8, it'll also be able to run Windows 8.1. Windows 8.1 system requirements are similar to Windows 8:

So what's your plan? Are you going to upgrade to Windows 8.1 RTM or will you perform a clean installation of Windows 8.1 in your computer? Feel free to share your comments..
