Microsoft has released this bouncy new advert for its Windows 8.1 release, which rolled out yesterday. Showing off all the different form factors that run the desktop operating system, numerous products are featured with some fancy transition effects to boot. It's an awesome little piece.

We're looking at laptops, tablets and large slates. The Modern UI really comes to life with bright screens and touch-screen support. There's also some 3D printer action too. No matter which device you're using, Windows 8.1 is a familiar experience across the board, especially if you're also a Windows Phone owner.

We dig the ad, it's a cool way to show off some of the unique things you can do with Windows 8 and just how many options are available in terms of hardware. If you haven't already upgraded to (or purchased a copy of) Windows 8.1, we strongly recommend it.
