    Windows 8 users can stay put if they don't want to upgrade to 8.1 and then 8.1.Update 1.
    excerpt .......
    A Microsoft Springboard Series blog post from April 2 also emphasizes that Windows 8.1 users need to move to Update to continue getting patches.

    This requirement does not apply to Windows 8 users who have not upgraded already to Windows 8.1, confirmed Mark Morowczynski, a Microsoft Premier Field Engineer. Windows 8 will remain supported by Microsoft until January 12, 2016, according to its lifecycle page. Users have until that time to move to Windows 8.1 and/or future Windows releases to remain supported by the company.

    Well, it looks that from this point on we will all be forced to upgrade! I was reading an article about the rest of the Windows OS, he support for those OS will come to an end sooner or later. I guess that only means one thing: upgrade over and over again.
