Windows 8 shipped late last year to mixed reviews. Most people enjoyed the performance gains, though the duality of the operating system was perplexing for many as well. Another issue was the relative lack of features in the stock applications that shipped with Redmond’s shiny new OS. It was assumed, however, that those applications would soon be updated.
According to Mary Jo Folley on her ZDNet blog, those updates will arrive for both Windows 8 and Windows RT, despite the latter’s poor performance in the computing market. It’s unclear what exactly will be included in these updates, though new features and better performance are likely.
