Windows 8.1 will be ready for manufacturers in August
On Worldwide Partner Conference, head of Windows, Tami Rellar, revealed that the RTM version of its Windows 8.1 update would be rolling out to Microsoft’s manufacturing partners in “late August”.
The free preview version of Windows 8.1 was only made available to developers and consumers on June 26 yet, if the operating system does indeed ship when Rellar says it will, Microsoft will have delivered in less than 10 weeks.
Windows 8.1 brings a number of improvements over Windows 8, including:
High-resolution display support
The updated software will automatically expand or contract icons and page furniture to match the resolution and size of a connected display. This is a key addition for consumers who want to use a tablet as their primary device but then dock it with a keyboard and standalone monitor for home or office use.
Microsoft’s taken on panorama photography, this built-in app will automatically join smaller images together to create one panoramic whole.
In Windows 8, there is no simple, straightforward or even logical way of viewing all of the apps installed on a computer together as a unified list. This problem has been dealt with rather elegantly and now a single swipe up pulls up a user’s list of installed apps.
The start button
Windows was listening to its users. However, the way it has been integrated is slightly different from start buttons of old. Clicking on it does not pull up a start menu from the task bar which expands in outward sections as the user rolls a mouse over. Instead, clicking on “Start” opens a start page.
Windows really is looking to the future rather than simply trying to second-guess its competitors, Windows 8 will have native support for 3D printing. It means that companied that are gearing up to make consumer-focused 3D printers will be able to use Microsoft’s official, supported code to write printer drivers for their products.
