Those who have found themselves frustrated with the ways of Windows 8 will want to take note of October 17. That's when Microsoft will roll out a revamped version of its latest operating system.
The release of Windows 8.1 comes nearly a year after the new OS hit store shelves. Windows 8 was a dramatic overhaul of the look and feel of the operating system the vast majority of computers worldwide run. But by creating a platform designed to work on both computers and tablets, some consumers ended up flustered and so far, sales of the software and devices that use it have been disappointing.
Windows 8.1 will be available as a free update to owners of Windows 8-based machines.
