Windows 8.1 Update 1 is so much better than the original Windows 8 - glad we waited for that before migrating from XP. Windows 8.1 Update 1 has required a quick (as in one minute) crash course in loading programmes and people have been able to get on and use it just fine.
The person we put on Windows 8.0 hated it, as did I.
