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.
