    On my Surface 2 SkyDrive is still called, well, SkyDrive. I was wondering if you guys' Surfaces have updated the app and desktop application to OneDrive automatically and if not how to do it?

    Thanks :)

    Unlike on Windows Phone, on Windows 8.1 SkyDrive is not a stand alone app but is baked into the OS. It will become OneDrive next month when Update 1 is released. That's why Microsoft is making some of its apps stand alone apps, like they did with the new xBox music app on Windows Phone, so it is easier and faster to update them.

    Of course not, it's an integrated product. They're updating it around April, when they push Update 1.

    I tweeted Mary Jo Foley about this after my phone updated and my Surface didn't. She said Microsoft announced the Surfaces wouldn't get updated during the next "major" update.

    Sorry, but why should one care unless they are totally OC?

    I think you are misunderstanding. From what I know, SkyDrive (and Win 8.1 in general) becomes OneDrive on the Surface with the scheduled update in April sometime.
