Windows 8.1 is here

I’ve been using 8.1 ever since it was released via MSDN months ago. Now Microsoft has announced its public release via the Windows Store. Anyone with Windows 8 operating system can download the update for free. For those who have installed the Windows 8.1 preview will need to reinstall their OS as update does not allow it via the Store.

Windows 8.1 System Requirements:

  • 1 GHz processor or faster with support for PAE, NX, and SSE2
  • 1-2 GB RAM / 16-20 GB available hard disk space
  • 1024 × 768 screen resolution
  • DirectX 9 graphics processor with WDDM driver

Here is a link for the complete list of Windows 8.1 system requirements

Currently doing the upgrade right now myself. Read this first if you want to upgrade your copy of windows 8 too.
