Important info for Windows 8.1 users

Recommended Posts

 

What this means is those users who have elected to install updates manually will have 30 days to install Windows 8.1 Update on Windows 8.1 devices; after this 30-day window - and beginning with the May Patch Tuesday, Windows 8.1 user's devices without the update installed will no longer receive security updates.

Do Win 8.1 users don't get a warning this is going to happen ? I certainly hope so.

I don't see how this is a big deal... They will get offered update 1 when they go to check for updates and then they will get offered the rest of their missing updates. 

 

I can see this mattering if you had to manually update to update 1 even if you used auto updates, thus cancelling auto update. But how is this any different for a user who is choosing to manually update? There is always updates you cant get until you install other updates first.
