What is new in Windows 8.1

Together with Server 2012R2, Windows 8.1 has also been released. Some of the notable changes are as follows:

  • Workplace join – Useful for BYOD scenarios, to offer an alternative to domain join a personal device
  • Internet Explorer 11 – Faster and better IE
  • NFC Tap-to-Pair printing – Wonder how that will work with a desktop 😉
  • Boot to Desktop – A lot of people have been asking for this and it is here
  • Improvements to Desktop and Start Screen – Another good one for anyone using Windows 8 on a non-touch device

For the full list of changes, fixes and new features have a look at the Technet article which is available here:
