I’ve been running windows 8.1 on my ASUS Zenbook for a while now and I’m surprised how stable and good it feels. The start button is back, but not the start Menu.
It is rumored to be RTM in late august and I believe that rumor because it feels like an RTM version already.
Microsoft will be realeasing windows more often than before and I think we will se a release annually, so 8.2 will be released in august 2014. The .1 and .2 versions could be looked at as the previously Servicepack for earlier versions of windows.
For the server there will be a 2012 R2 released with a lot of new goodies that I will discuss in another blog post.
