    1.
    2. SRP/AppLocker hotfix apparently is not available for Windows 8.

    IMHO, this is an important AppLocker change if it's true, especially for those of you who use an admin account as your everyday account.

    No doubt there are some differences which may concern businesses, who can justify purchasing the MS Volume licensing requirements for Win 8.1 Enterprise (minimum 5 pc's), but for the typical home pc user this is probably all irrelevant. I will stick with Win 7 Ultimate for the foreseeable future because it works fine for me and offers AppLocker, where no Volume licensing was required to purchase it.
