Yes, upgrading from 8.0 to 8.1 is highly recommended.

I updated Windows 8 to 8.1 for free yesterday and things don't work the same and there is no uninstall most settings are knocked up. I've been fed up with Windows 8 64bit for 6 months so I have to workout how to get it boot boot up to the Windows 7 DVD so I can go back to a better OS. Windows 7 uses NTFS partition Windows 8 uses a GPT partition so it will have to be formatted. I've disabled secure boot in the BIOS but there is no Legacy/CSM boot option or boot device to read the DVD on startup.

I would not state that it is highly recommended.  It is your choice if you wish to go with 8.1 or not.  There are still issues with certain OEM machines that are not playing nice with it, so take your own risk, if you update to 8.1.
