Microsoft Windows 8.1 Will Be Free - Downloads Start June 26th!

I would myself. I have a couple copies of Windows 8 and will obtain the updated version. I'm sure they will have included some "OS fixes" aside from just interface changes so best to get them while you can for free. Sometimes Microsoft limits how long certain downloads are free or available.

From my understanding the only way to get the update today is via the Windows Store.  If you can wait it should be available via other methods soon.

Up to 4 different apps on-screen at once

Other new features of Windows 8.1 include more options to use multiple apps. People will be able to determine how much of the screen each app takes while showing up to four different programs, rather than just two. The update will also offer more integrated search results, showing users previews of websites, apps and documents that are on the device, all at once.

So you mean this is a step forward from the unlimited apps I can have running or displaying on my current build of Windows 7 ?
