Windows 8.1 is here! Hopefully it'll fix some issues.

While I’ve not been able to get it just yet, reports are that Windows 8.1 is being rolled out as I type this. If you’re already on Windows 8 have a peek in the Windows Store and it should be there as an update.

Fingers are very crossed that this fixes the issues we’ve seen in A fix for my Windows 8 laptop dropping wifi connection. Most notably of course the wifi dropping out for no apparent reason.

Other things that have changed are that the Start bar is back! As I say I’ve not seen 8.1 yet but I’ll be sure to uninstall ClassicShell and give it a whirl, probably attach a video or something too. Obviously if you’ve tried it and have any sort of opinion on it (Good or bad!) please do feel free to mention in the comments below!

If you’re more of a cautious sort of person and would prefer someone else jump in first please let me know any specifics you’d like looking at and I’ll make sure to have a poke around in that area.

Changes in 8.1

Good lord I hope it doesn’t suck as much as the transition from real Windows to mid-life crisis Windows 8 did.
