Using Windows 8.1? It's time to get the update - CNET
Ahhhh, that explains why I can't find it on my WSUS server Will have to wait until tomorrow to play then
Still nothing on WSUS Come on MS!!
Windows 8.1 Update prevents interaction with WSUS 3.2 over SSL « WSUS Product Team Blog
Microsoft plans to issue an update as soon as possible that will correct the issue and restore the proper behavior for Windows 8.1 Update scanning against all supported WSUS configurations. Until that time, we are temporarily suspending the distribution of the Windows 8.1 Update to WSUS servers.
Just installed this today. Doesn't really fix anyone's complaints about the pointlessness of the start screen on a non-touch device and how poorly the metro/modern UI apps work without a touchscreen. They still haven't even gotten round to introducing windowed versions of the Metro apps so I can actually use them effectively.
And when I'm using it on a touchscreen it still defaults back to the desktop control panel apps way to often when changing settings/etc. Surely by now they should have replicated nearly all the desktop functionality in the Modern UI?
If this is the best a global company with the resources of Microsoft can accomplish in 2 years after the release of Windows 8 they really are in trouble! It's like they're not even trying. I think they should just admit defeat in trying to build a combined UI for both touch and mouse/keyboard and offer up separate UI's for each or else they're in danger of losing both markets.
It seemed like a good idea when they launched Windows 8 but it's clearly not working IMO.
I have some little Intel classmates which I was going to install this on but I might not bother now.
Is just the update itself there and/or can you apply the update via the complete ISO?
You can get just the update itself from the Windows Update feature, or add it into your WSUS server (if you use one). Its big, around 700Mb. I don't know if you can just install the update from that ISO, probably not is my guess.
