Yes, but MS is only supporting Win 8 'till like 2015 or something. 8.1 will be supported until 2025.

I've seen the 2 years to upgrade part referenced quite a few times. Don't recall seeing the support for 8.1 till 2025 though

I don't believe that MS rep is correct. 8.1 is essentially a service pack, and like all service packs before it... You have 2 years to upgrade.

Windows 8 customers will have two years to move to Windows 8.1 after the General Availability of the Windows 8.1 update to continue to remain supported under the Windows 8 lifecycle.
