Ultra99 --. . . if over 8.1 preview we'll need to reinstall apps.
I thought 8.1 Preview was good and was working well for around 2 months, and then suddenly the Store stopped working and my network goes in-out. I don't see any pressing need for 8.1 Preview over 8.0; I think the risks to 8.1 Preview outweigh any of its benefits over 8.0.Just got my surface pro today, should I install 8.1 now or wait 2 months?
I've been using 8.1 on my laptop since its release and find no problems.
See the thinking is that eventually everything will be metro and this will be less of an issue... Eventually... Now on the other hand...Ultra99 --
To say "reinstall apps" makes it sound too easy. I have not installed 8.1 on either my Pro or that of my Ladyfriend, because we both have significant "legacy apps" installed, and re-installing them is a lot of work -- especially with the need for validations, etc. I have 8.1 running on a desktop machine in my shop, but for the two Pros, I'll wait for the real thing.
