Windows 8.1 RTM Thoughts

Preview->RTM upgrade way is a boring topic to discuss. I am more wondering why Microsoft couldn’t implement it as incremental update automatically installable via Windows Update. Instead, typical long installation is required. And the first try was unsuccessful at all (until I updated certain drivers).

It hasn’t taken too long to encounter the first bug. This time in Search Bar.

Search (“ie” is entered there just for test)

Never encountered it in Preview. explorer.exe restart helps in that case.
