A poll created by ChristineBCW (with a slight assist from Kerry56)
I assume that all Win8 users will migrate to Win8.1, or will they? And when? Immediately, or delay? Win8.1’s apparent RTM confusion isn’t the first RTM that’s had after-the-last minute changes (that’s why HP’s printer drivers didn’t work on Win95-B initially, but 2 months later, Microsoft re-inserted the original driver specs which HP used were re-installed onto B-disks). There have been other examples in other Win Disks, but never as big as a new (incorrect?) Driver Definition being used, and those were fixable by Win Updates.
Here are her original poll choices, but the polling mechanism will only allow 100 characters, so her descriptions wouldn’t fit. Thought you should see them anyway:
I will install Win8.1 immediately upon its release. As Robert Duvall said, “I love the smell of napalm in the morning!” Yessir, Mr. Houdini, Sir! Step this way to the bleeding edge!
I will wait a month. The American Thanksgiving is held at the end of November, and I can drown my frustrations and perhaps escape the family by pretending the Win8.1 update is suddenly ‘critical’. Or when it flops, I can retreat back to the table for more dessert.
I will wait more than a month. “If this machine blows up about Dec 10th, maybe I’ll have some great excuses to buy during Christmas bargain times. Of course, if I wait until that week after Christmas, all those will be even cheaper.”
