Installing Windows 8.1 preview will cost your Apps
Windows 8.1 preview version which is going to be released on June 26, 2013 is a free update to current Windows 8 users but the Apps that are being installed in your PC have to be re-installed once you upgrade your OS to the preview version. This re-downloading process will take hours of patience and effort and so Microsoft has made its statement clear to use the preview version only on shared PCs which are only meant for web surfing and gaming. As the name says, preview version will focus on the changes that will be coming with Windows 8.1.This again puts restriction on getting a good experience of the build. Already-disappointed Windows 8 users will probably get another reason to dislike it. So take a chance and a little time to download the build as well as the removed apps. But, if you are not in any intention to re install your favorite apps, you can view the changed look by installing it in VirtualPC, VirtualBox, VMware and others.
