For the last month i have been receiving an annoying message from windows update. The alert wants me to update my Windows 8, to Windows 8.1. The question that i have is, what is the difference between the two? Does Windows 8.1 offer different features than Windows 8? I have a rather slow internet connection. 1.5 mbps to be exact. I want to know is it worth my time to wait 8-10 hours for the new Operating System to download, and install. Or should i just stay with Windows 8?
