Windows 8.1 is Coming, Are You Ready to Switch?

It is good news that Windows 8.1 will ship in October. So are you ready to switch to Windows 8? If you are attempted to migrate to Win 8, below is 3 reasons why you should upgrade Win 8 with the release of Windows 8.1.

3 Reasons for the Upgrade of Windows 8.1 

1. More Desktop-friendly

The biggest advantage on Windows 8 when the first time it launched last year was that its tablet-centric approach jarring and counterproductive on desktop, which making desktop users spend a significant amount of their time playing at their desks. For this criticism, Microsoft is making lots of tweaks in Windows 8.1 such as adding a start button to let Win 8 boot directly to the desktop. So it can help mouse-wielding users to jump to the new Windows Start page easily. Moreover, you can also select a rowing list of free Start Menu replacement apps—such as classic shell and start menu 8 if you prefer.

2. Faster and more stable

Indeed, even detractors who disliked the tablet-centric Modern UI have nothing to say about the general speed and stability of the Win 8 OS. The new Windows 8-based Ultrabooks sold today boot up significantly faster than the average Windows machine purchased just a year or two ago. This alone may be a good reason for small businesses to consider switching to Windows 8.
The impending release of Windows 8.1 will mark the one-year milestone of Window 8’s release, which means that more apps and device drivers than ever would have added support for it. Ultimately, Windows 8 represents the future of the Windows platform, and small businesses would do well to acquaint themselves with the new OS sooner rather than later.

3. Better SkyDrive integration

SkyDrive receives a radical overhaul in Windows 8.1, morphing from a mere cloud-storage service into a veritable extension of the local storage drive. For example to maximize cloud storage, Win 8.1 will not store uploaded documents and photos locally. However, they will be cached in such a way that they take up very little space on the hard disk drive, yet remain searchable.
Thumbnails of pictures will be automatically scaled to the best resolution for the current device; the full resolution image will be downloaded only when required for editing.

So what are you waiting for? Catch on to switch to Win 8 once the release of Windows 8.1 and enjoy it!
