I just bought a Dell desktop computer which came loaded with Windows 8. I have not powered it on yet.
I know Microsoft is offering free upgrade to Windows 8.1 to those who are already using Windows 8. My question is should I upgrade to Windows 8.1 right away before transferring my files, folders, and settings from my old computer (I know how to do that) and starting to use the new machine? Would that make upgrade to Windows 8.1 easier? Or is it better to get used to Windows 8 first (I am jumping from Windows XP to Windows 8) and then upgrade to Windows 8.1? Pros and cons of both will help me decide what I want to do. Thanks in advance for your helpful suggestions.
