Hey, remember me....?
"...mainstream Windows 8.1 upgrade available to OEMs".
Well that is good news, for OEMs. I can't help to think that Apple and Google both raised themselves up from ashes by using the general consumer. Things like word of mouth, trendy iThings, snazzy Colours. Coincidentally that has and is happening as Microsoft slouches a bit. So, good for the OEMs, but why isn't Microsoft giving sneak peaks to regular old consumers as well?
Truthfully, I really can't word it right, but it seems the focus of Microsoft products has no place for general consumers anymore. Everything M$ seems to be done in hope of the "Big" sale.
