On Wednesday, Microsoft released their highly-anticipated preview build of Windows 8.1. Windows 8.1 promises numerous improvements to search, the Windows app store, cloud storage, and enhanced personalization features. In particular, Windows 8.1 also promises a potential "revival" of the oft-missed Start button.
Microsoft has also released an in-depth preview guide for users to showcase some of their major changes to the flagship OS.
We'll be taking 8.1 for a preview spin, but the preview update is free to download. Just remember to back up any sensitive files in case you need to revert back to Windows 8.0.
