Introducing Windows 8.1 for IT Professionals (Ed Bott)

Get a head start on assessing Windows 8.1 with Ed Bott, an award-winning journalist and Windows authority, on early technical insights.

This tutorial, which is based on the Windows 8.1 Preview release, explains new features and capabilities and offers scenario-based guidance on how Windows 8.1 can suit your company's needs. Receive the high-level overview you require to start organizing your deployment right away.

By outlining Windows 8.1's facts and features as clearly as I can in this book, I hope to assist you on your upgrade journey. When switching to Windows 8.1, those who have been living in environments created around an earlier version of Windows have a lot to learn. I've attempted to provide those facts in the most objective way possible by beginning with an overview of the operating system, outlining the numerous improvements to the user experience, and going in-depth when appropriate on deployment and administration tools.
