Microsoft Windows 8.1 Commercial Spot Touts One Cross-Platform Experience, Start Button
There's actually a lot to like in Windows 8.1, some of which Microsoft shows off in its short commercial. For one, you can resize tiles to your liking, making the "important things big" like that photo of Fido, and "keep the small stuff small," such as the Calculator icon that will come in handy once in a while.
One of the best new features of Windows 8.1 is the ability to multitask from the Start screen. You'll be able to have multiple applications open and running on the Start screen at the same time rather than have a single program dominate the entire screen.
Microsoft isn't just pitching new features, but also the cross-platform approach it's taken with Windows 8/8.1. If you can navigate Windows 8/8.1 on your laptop or desktop, then you'll have no trouble doing the same on a tablet or Surface device.
