According to Thorrott, yes:

That is to 8 and not 8.1 I believe you have to do 8 first, then do the update from 8 to 8.1, that is you cannot go from 7 to 8.1 directly and keep the apps.

You can always upgrade to Pro from Home. Ever since XP, you could do this.

However, BACK UP first. It does not always work correctly.



Thank you!
