Beware the black underbelly of Windows 8.1
If you already have Windows 8 -- whether you were forced to buy it with a new computer, inherited it from a family member, coerced into it by your boss, or you just love tapping those huggable live tiles -- upgrading to Windows 8.1 is a no-brainer.
Lots of people think of Windows 8.1 as the version of Windows 8 Microsoft should’ve shipped a year ago, and they’re not far wrong. But before you move to Windows 8.1, make sure you understand the limitations and, uh, features on offer. Unpleasant surprises await the unwary.
