Windows 8.1

Windows 8.1 is set to see a Spring 2014 update, but already we're seeing pre-release screenshots leak on the Internet. If you're not in the loop when it comes to the Spring update, Microsoft will likely release this upgrade for free to consumers later this year. Head on past the break to see the screenshots.

According to reports, there won't be a preview of the update for consumers to download and enjoy (much like Windows 8.1 - you've got until January if you're still rocking the previews), though you can look out to spot more details emerge as we run up to Microsoft's BUILD conference later this year.

It's not currently known exactly what Microsoft will include in this Spring update, but the company is set to re-introduce the start menu at some point. 2015 will see Microsoft push out Windows Phone "Threshold" to converge the mobile platform with Windows 8.1 and Xbox One.
