Last week, Microsoft accidentally disclosed several Windows 8.1 Update 1 download links, which basically allowed everyone with Internet access to download and install the new OS version prepared by the software giant for the April launch.
While Microsoft has quickly taken down the links, a Chinese website is now claiming that the build
that was delivered to users on that day was actually just a testing version supposed to allow the Redmond-based company to test the update system that’s going to go live once Windows 8.1 Update 1 is released.
suggests that build 17031 is not RTM, which means that those who rushed to install it might need to reinstall their operating systems
once again once the full build becomes available, as it’s not yet clear whether the new and final version could be delivered via Windows Update to these computers.
