After years of being told it never innovates, Microsoft came out with Windows 8. That's when folks said, "Please, don't innovate any more, just go with what already works!" Sure, not everyone has embraced the Metro style or the Start screen and whole dual-desktop, dual-apps approach of Windows 8. But you have to admit, it's different from everyone else right now, for better or worse.
Windows 8.1 pretty much makes Windows 8 slightly less terrible. It's true: A Start button that doesn't attach to a Start menu is a bit of an enigma, but Windows 8.1 provides a variety of enhancements that make Windows 8 friendlier. I've been hoping that Windows 8.2 might follow that path and take us one step closer to something likable.
