    I have not used windows 8.1, but used windows 8. It is useful for touch screen devices i think.

    8.1 is nothing but having some more features extra nothing else. So you have settle with window eight because it is again a risky thing to install and delete all those stuff.

    Some of those features may be things that users wanted, or that make tasks easier. For instance, instead of moving the cursor to the lower left corner to bring up the Start screen, and wondering if you moved it far enough, there is now a Start button on the taskbar. You can now also boot directly to the desktop if you wish, if the programs you need are already there.
    Do you use Microsoft's apps for everything? If not, in Windows 8.1, you can now set your own default apps for some common tasks you may perform.
