I didn't think it would be happening already, this is just sad.

This was already known. Install Update 1 and you're set. And there's no reason not to install Update 1 unless you're in the corporate world (unless they also fixed that particular issue, I haven't looked into it).

The hell you talking bout Willis? Windows 8 won't be "abandoned" till 2023. Hell even unpatched Windows 8 is still a supported option until 2016

My bad I just misread it. Also google Microsoft Abandons Windows 8.1: Take Immediate Action Or Be Cut Off Like Windows XP

He's talking about this:
http://www.forbes.com/sites/gordonkelly/2014/04/15/microsoft-abandons-windows-8-1-take-immediate-action-or-be-cut-off-like-windows-xp/
In short, if you have Windows 8, no worries, but if you have Windows 8.1, you must install Update 1 or you're not getting security updates starting next month.

I really despise the media, in general. Ridiculous, alarmist article titles.

To be fair, the reason he upped the ante so much is he really is that disgusted at the approach.

It's not just "lol, how many people will click this if they see that *coolface*". The guy who wrote that really is calling MS on their crap.

Just because you have reasons for disliking a game doesn't mean you are justified in doing so. Those reasons might be lame.
