In fact, InformationWeek author Jeff Bertolucci has eight specific problems with Windows 8.1 that he'd like to share. While many businesses are sticking with Windows 7 or making due with alternatives until the next version of Windows arrives, those IT professionals who are trying to make sense of the most recent interface and features have their work cut out for them.

In his InformationWeek post, Bertolucci observes that even with the changes Microsoft made from Windows 8 to Windows 8.1, the company has not solved all the problems with the operating system:

"But even with these changes -- some of them quite good, in fact -- Windows 8's inherent clunkiness shows through. It seemed an ambitious, if misguided, attempt to build a single UI for touch tablets, conventional PCs, and hybrid devices."

With technology changing the way we live and the way we work, InformationWeek seeks out the big answers to today's IT challenges, even if it's only to vent about the location of the Start button.
