Old news... Kaby Lake is still working on windows8.1
The OS just wont auto update, you can still update the driver manual
For those who don't know, majorgeeks.com hosts all the patches and updates from MS, meaning that anyone can update any machine, regardless of MS stance on 'new' hardware.
It could be pressure will have caused MS to change their stance on data collection by that time
Don't count on it! MS recently spoke of hard-coding various advertising and data collection tools into the OS using Windows Explorer... and unlike the built-in apps, which can be uninstalled or disabled, those tools cannot be removed or disabled without completely crippling the OS. It was rumoured they were to have been implemented with the Creator's Update, though I've not heard of anyone with the update complaining thus far. I've not seen anything like that since updating, either, but MS decided it would go the hard-coded way because data its mining apps could be disabled, and come Hell or high water, they really, really want that data.
