Windows 8.1 update won’t be mandatory

Windows 8 logoWindows 8.1 Preview will start showing up in Windows Store on June 26, so users will be allowed to install it with just a few clicks.

Since we’re received quite a lot of questions regarding the way Microsoft wants to use to push the update to Windows 8 workstations, here’s a very important thing.

Users will be allowed to decide whether they want to install Windows 8.1 or not, so in case you’re already satisfied with what Windows 8 has to offer, you could delay the update as long as you want.

A Microsoft spokesperson confirmed for ZDNet that Windows 8 users will have the option to install Windows 8.1 or completely skip it, but the update will continue to be available in the Store, just in case they change their mind.

How will we know when Win 8.1 (final) is available? Will it show up in the normal Update notifications for Win 8, and be downloadable just as, say, security-driven updates are?
