Bangalore: Microsoft released the Beta version of its next operating system Windows 8.1 at the company's annual developer conference in San Francisco on Wednesday. The new version gets back the popular “Start” button and host of new features in an attempt to attract both users and developers, reports FirstPost.



The updated OS is primary aimed at soothing the traditional computer users who felt the “Metro” style based UI of Windows 8 was a turn off for those who used traditional desktops and laptops without touch enabled commands. Windows 8.1 is designed keeping adaptability as the top priority since in this version users can configure their lock screens, customize windows and tiles and, ideally, use the new Windows on whatever device they choose.
