Boy, Microsoft really have to get this naming scheme thing down. A rumor from a Russian site claimed that Windows 8.1 Update 2 was to be released August 12, and that report also revealed its name. Redmond is referring to it as the ‘August update’. Now another report from a fairly reliable sources confirms both...

For something that is expected to arrive as early as August, we only have a few nuggets of information available here and there about it. Windows 8.1 Update 2 is, more or less, still a mystery. This post aims to solve this mystery a little, and claims that the second update to Windows 8.1 might be here between August...

Windows 8.1 already received a major update this year, and it is about to get another one very soon. Although officially unconfirmed, Windows 8.1 Update 2 is on track for release later this year. Microsoft have, however, made it clear that they are working on a new update for Windows 8.1. What the company decides to...

Microsoft’s flagship operating system is in line to get its second update sometime this year, with the company already confirming such a happening. But details on timing have been overly scarce.

We first heard the name (or codename, if you will) Threshold a few weeks back. The initial details were as vague as they could be, and some figured this was the name of Windows 8.2, while others pegged this as Windows 9. Well, it looks like the latter camp was onto something! Threshold, it turns out, is actually...

The most popular topic among the Microsoft user base these days is Windows Threshold. While we had had a handful of rumors about the so-called Spring 2014 GDR update for Windows 8.1, Threshold is where it is at right now. And the reason for this enthusiasm? News that Redmond may bring back the classic Start Menu with...

So I step away from this blog for 10 seconds and Microsoft go bonkers on me with yet another possible Windows 8 update.
