    Windows 8.1 Update 1 may be delayed for one month

    In my last post I write about the release of Windows 8.1 Update probability indicates March timeframe. OK now I have to admit that Microsoft can turn out my word. Because rumor has it that the first major update for Microsoft’s latest Operating System will launch in early April. Initial reports indicated that Update 1 would be available in March, but now it seems that it’s been pushed to April 8th. Windows 8.1 Update 1 is a collection of features and fixes for Windows 8.1. Most of the new features are aimed at making Windows 8.1 more palatable to those who prefer using a mouse to navigate the latest Windows release.

    Windows 8.1 Update 1 change list

    One of the first purported additions with the new update comes the ability to run Windows 8 applications on the desktop. Not many people are happy with the “tile heavy” approach Windows 8 has forced upon its users, and the fact that Microsoft is allowing us to work more within the familiar desktop framework is a welcome addition.

    It’s also rumored that booting straight into desktop mode will be available with the update, as well as the ability to pin Windows 8 applications to the taskbar.

    Microsoft’s //BUILD/ developer conference takes place over April 2-4. While we know Windows Phone 8.1 will dominate the news at Build, it’s also a good place for Microsoft to talk about their other platforms like Windows and Xbox. They can talk Windows 8.1 Update and release it a few days later via Patch Tuesday. Makes sense to us.
