Well the sad thing, is I may take advantage of this if a serious vulnerability is discovered as I am still using XP on the machine I built just over 5 years ago. It still runs very well. 

They say it may be a bit risky running this. Still I am kind of holding out for Win 9

8.1 is FABULOUS as is out of the box.  I made one correction to make it boot to the desktop.  That's it.

Did you mean that it boots to the desktop instead of Metro? Applying the update to Win8.1 already makes it boot directly to the desktop by default.

 

Or did I misunderstood?

No, it still defaults to Metro. It allows you to choose to boot to desktop without 3rd party apps.
