Unless you apply the update

ONCE AGAIN CLAIMING that it knows what's best for its customers, Microsoft has announced the end of support for the initial release of Windows 8.1.

No, that's not a misprint, and this in spite of the fact that, according to the March figures from Net Applications, more users are using Windows 8 than Windows 8.1.

Only last week we reported that many users, particularly in enterprise environments, were having problems with the update to Windows 8.1 due to a bug that prevents all future updates from being applied.

Google needs to make an Android OS for laptops.

Kinda misleading on the title there.  They aren't ending support for it.  Just requiring everyone to get a security patch which they basically need to get anyway.

Already did back in '09. It is called Chrome OS.

I am familiar with Chrome OS.  My comment was tongue in cheek...

Good grief NO!

Android is awful. I have it on my tablet. It might be a big advance on the normal phone OS but for a proper PC it's rubbish.
