For example, with Reading List you can save articles and stories across apps and devices, and the updated Photos app gives you fast and fun editing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Good features Happy with the product but very slow and patchy service from Scan 04 January 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Windows innovated! I've been using Windows 7 for many years. When Windows 8 came out I hesitated to buy it because of negative reviews people gave (or more precisely about the change of Start button). After I've upgraded my pc I've decided to give Windows 8 a try. I bought 8.1 Pro edition because that was the latest one and I've been using it ever since. After the installation if your computer connected to the internet it asks you to create Microsoft account or if you have it already it asks you to sign in. I don't know if you can skip this step but I preferred to have local account for my computer. You can change it later by going in the Settings tab in the Charms bar. Features like OneDrive requires you to have Windows to be connected with the Microsoft account. After running Windows 8.1 for about a month now I've had no serious issues whatsoever. Boots twice as fast as Windows 7 and shuts down more quickly. The start button has now been replaced by "Metro" style which expands to full screen with the tiles that shows weather and calendar. Pressing "Windows" button on your keyboard also directs you to Metro. The old start menu programs like My Computer (which is renamed to "This PC" in Windows 8) are accessible from the Metro too. On the second page (If you press on down arrow) it has a list of Apps and your programs in alphabetical order. Windows 8 also includes new Charms tool bar which has new essential shortcuts that allow you to search, share or setup your pc. One good Charms tool is the Search feature where you can search for your programs or files. The new feature of Windows 8 is built-in store (which I never used) which is directly accessible from the task bar where you can buy games and Apps. There are also some free Apps and games too that you can try at no extra cost too. One of Windows 8 new features that I like is new simplified task manager and the new file copy window which stacks copy jobs rather creates new windows. if you click on "More details" it shows live progress meter with the current speed as well as remaining time / files as the copy progresses. The most stand out feature of Windows 8 is the support for the touch screen displays. One Windows for all devices no mater how big or small! If you new to Windows 8 I recommend you to try it! 29 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by No problems so far! One word of advice, if you dont like the windows 8 metro screen i suggest you install, for instance, Classic Shell Installed onto a samsung 850 pro 256gb ssd and boot times are under 10 seconds to desktop which is a load more than my 6 year old previous desktop computer! No BSOD's yet touch wood! Currently awaiting windows 10 but would be happy staying on windows 8,1 now i have classic shell installed :) 17 May 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Works better than expected Was unsure about this OS due to the new "version" of the Start Menu, but seems to work well and indeed provides better performance on existing hardware. 20 January 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by WIndows 8.1 works with Classic Shell!! DVD of Windows 8.1 worked as expected and was delivered promptly. Not the fault of Scan, but you do need to use Classic Shell (or similar) to use easily on a PC with keyboard. 02 December 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by It's Windows 8.1. Not much to say. I needed Windows 8.1 so I bought it. It's very windows like. Scan service is always good, no problem there. 30 November 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Windows 8.1 pro It's the newest version on the market and had loads of new features. Great product if you have an existing setup and you want to upgrade or your building a new system. 18 July 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by It's an operating system............................. easier to get on with than I expected after reading other reviews 26 May 2014

Hello,

As of the 30th October 2015, the Windows 8 and 8.1 Pro Pack (which upgraded Windows 8 Home or 8.1 Home to Windows 8 Pro or 8.1 Pro, with Media Center) and Media Pack (which added Media Center to Windows 8 Pro or 8.1 Pro) are no longer available for purchase from Microsoft.
