That's why I wrote this tip for people who hate Windows 8.
Fortunately, your wait is over. Microsoft just released the long-awaited Windows 8.1. It's free for existing Windows 8 users and should soon be available by default on any new computer.
This update is Microsoft's attempt to fix the problems users have complained about for a whole year. It even brings back the Start button, sort of.
While it isn't perfect, it is a must-have update for anyone with Windows 8. For those still using a Windows XP computer, now is the time to think about upgrading. XP won't be around forever, after all.
