Why is Microsoft dropping support for Windows 8.1?

The Windows 8.1 operating system is barely eight months old but Microsoft is already keen to brush it under the carpet. The Windows 8.1 Update mandate is shaping up as a high-stakes gamble.

In a move certain to raise the ire of users of Microsoft’s Windows operating system the software giant has announced that next month it will cease support for Windows 8.1.

But that operating system is barely eight months old and already an upgraded version of the Windows 8 system that failed to impress many users since its release in 2012.
