Microsoft is struggling to explain its requirement for Windows 8.1 customers to update to the latest version of the OS in order to receive bug and security patches.

Microsofts Windows 8.1 Update requirement generates confusion


From Computerworld:
Responding to complaints from commercial customers -- those who receive fixes via WSUS (Windows Server Update Services), Windows Intune or System Center Configuration Manager -- Microsoft buckled and extended the deadline to August. It kept the original May 12 deadline in place for consumers, but then on Monday at the last minute moved it to June 10.

So Windows 8.1 consumer customers will get access to security fixes through June 10 -- including the monthly patches due out today -- but Microsoft will not deliver to them fixes for bugs it doesn't consider security-related, according to a Microsoft spokesman.
