Thanks. So, does Microsoft have a scheme for Win8 users to upgrade to 8.1?

It is said that 8.1 will be a free upgrade for all win8. Somewhat similar to service packs of prior win8 time.

it should have. they allow win 7 to win8 for a few dollars. so i think they should have it. either free or paid.

Yes, was told that it will be a free upgrade for win8.1. I will not download it as I am afraid of some issues popping up. Shall wait for the release of the full version.

it is only a beta, opened for public preview. Not an official release.

In another word, MS is saying "expect bugs and don't complain if you install this version"
