Majority believes Windows 8.1 update can revive Windows 8 sales: Poll results
  • Microsoft would also be hoping the update to Windows 8 brings joy to PC manufacturers as well as increase adoption of Windows.

Microsoft is betting big on Windows 8.1 after Windows 8 failed to boost revenues for the company. Windows 8.1 Blue is not only a major improvement for the current Windows 8 platform, but also Microsoft's  attempt to grab the leading spot in the OS market.

With PC sales plummeting worldwide, Microsoft would also be hoping the update to Windows 8 brings joy to PC manufacturers as well as increase adoption of world's top desktop operating system.

The Windows 8.1 update brings a range of new features, enhanced performance and most importantly restores the familiar Start button. It also includes Xbox Music, Reading lists, Bing Food & Drinks and Bing Health & Fitness and a few other apps. Read Microsoft details Windows 8.1 Blue update, from Start button to Alarm app

That being said, question still persists - will Windows 8.1 propel Windows 8 adoption? In our last week's poll question we asked your take on the same. We received a total of 866 votes, out of which majority 543 respondents (63 percent) expressed optimism on Windows 8.1 Blue reviving Windows 8 sales.
