Microsoft launches Windows 8.1 preview web page

For the past week, Microsoft has been getting the word out about its upcoming Windows 8 upgrade, Windows 8.1, starting with news about the features that will be of interest for consumers. Today, the company revealed a number of new business and enterprise features that will be included with Windows 8.1.

Alongside today's news, Microsoft has also launched a new webpage devoted to Windows 8.1 information. The page is located on Microsoft's enterprise section of the Windows website so, as you might expect, it concentrates on the features that businesses will be interested in.

While the preview page itself is heavy on the graphics and photos and sparse on the details, there's a link at the bottom that leads to a "What's New in Windows 8.1" page. It contains a lot more information on the free upgrade, most of which Microsoft revealed earlier today in two blog posts. 

Microsoft is planning to release the free preview version of Windows 8.1, along with a preview build of Windows Embedded 8.1 Industry and a new update to Windows RT, on June 26, ahead of a final release later in 2013.
