First Windows 8.1 Fixes Released

Less than a week after the version debuted publicly


That didn't take long.

Microsoft last week rolled out its first round of bug fixes for Windows 8.1. The first update came less than a week after the new operating system debuted as a public preview and Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer touted the company's commitment to quick releases. The company's quick strike seems to signal that Ballmer's plan, central to his larger "devices and services" vision, is rounding into shape.
