A look at Windows 8.1

I had an old hard drive lying around so I thought I would take the SSD out of my laptop and install a “leaked” copy of the forthcoming Windows 8.1 (AKA Windows Blue). This isn’t really a review, it’s just some thoughts about it. I didn’t use it for very long so it’s really my first impressions. The version that I installed wasn’t even an official preview so it’s quite likely that by the time it gets released it will be at least a little bit different. It was also missing some key features like the ability to activate it and do Windows updates.

It’s worth mentioning that I have hardly used Windows 8 (apart from a brief look at the official consumer preview just before the final release) so 8.1 might not be very different. I’m really not sure.

    Hey guys I really enjoy the show. Even if the mac promotion drives me nuts. On subject of your prism discussion Steve Gibson had a very interesting idea on ep 408 on how he thinks ks prism works without any permission or knowledge from the company’s involved
