Windows 8.1 users who haven't yet installed the major update released by Microsoft in April, will stop receiving updates starting tomorrow.

Microsoft had announced that the update which was earlier known as the "Spring" update would be a mandatory update for Windows 8.1 users and had a given a buffer period for users to update to it. After launching the major update in April, Microsoft set a deadline for users in a blog post, which asserted, "Failure to install this Update will prevent Windows Update from patching your system with any future updates starting with Updates released in May 2014 (get busy!)": http://blogs.technet.com/b/askpfeplat/archive/2014/04/07/exploring-windows-8-1-update-start-screen-desktop-and-other-enhancements.aspx

However, Microsoft extended this deadline to 10th of June, which gave users another 30 days to update their Windows 8.1 installation. Now, the day has come that Microsoft will stop supporting users who have failed to get their systems running on the latest Windows 8.1. Interestingly, Windows 8 users are not required to be on the latest and greatest version of Windows, although the mainstream support for the OS might end in the near future.

If you have automatic updates turned on, you have nothing to worry about. For those of you who install patches manually, make sure you have the spring update installed, otherwise, you machine could become vulnerable to known exploits.

I still don't get this... What is Microsoft thinking here? What is in store for them 8.1 users...? Luckily, I still failed to upgrade my warez 8.0 to 8.1. Crashes on reboot: no boot disk found or something like that ;p RAID...
