    Windows 8.1 Release

    Hi all

    Now that Win 8.1 is due to be released on 18/10/13 has anyone got any idea if they will release an ISO or will we have to install Win 8 first and upgrade it.

    I'm running the preview at the moment and would rather do a clean install when it's released.

    MS just said in their blog that they will not release ISO yet : Mark your calendars for Windows 8.1!

    So upgrade via Windows Store only from 17th / 18th of October.
