For the past 3 weeks now I have been trying to buy a windows 8.1 installation DVD so that I can install Windows 8.1 on one of my netbook. So i phoned up PC worls which is the main computer store here in England where I am. The customer services adviser told me they only sell Windows 8 but not Windows 8.1,but maybe they will have it in 2 weeks time. So now 3 weeks later I telephoned PC worlds again yesterday and they told me they won't be getting Windows 8.1 in their high street stores at al,only Windows 8. So if you have the misfortune of living in England as I do, you either have to download Windows 8.1 though the apps store or buy it direct from Microsoft. Either online from their website or by phoning up Microsoft and ordering over the telephone with a debit or credit card. First of all because I am running Windows 8 on a netbook,it won't run Metro apps. so updating though the apps store not an option for me. So the only other way is to either buy it online or by phone from Microsoft. At least Microsoft do have the option of ordering over the telephone and the install DVD is then sent to you buy post. Or you can download the Windows 8.1 ISO from the Microsoft website after you have paid for it of course. But it still would be better if we could go out and buy Windows 8.1 in the high street stores but we can't in England I think it's silly.
