    Second windows 8.1 preview


    I thought I read somewhere that there is going to be a second release of windows 8.1 preview. Can anyone confirm this.

    I doubt that since the RTM version has already been released to MSDN and Technet subscribers and 8.1 is due to be released to the public next week.

    I'm with Strollin, I don't think that's likely to happen, for the very reasons he listed.

    I would tend to agree, but I am not nuts, crazy maybe, but there was an article that stated there would be another preview in about a week. That was about 2 or three days ago.

    Btw that article was not here.

    That could be true. I guess I am so busy I might have read the article wrong. I should have saved it for further reading. Oh well!

    Here is the second preview story I read:

    There will be an evaluation version

    There is currently an evaluation version for Windows 8. When Windows 8.1 is released in a couple weeks, an evaluation version of that will be available. That's what I would wait for.

    The second preview is the Windows 8.1 Preview that is already out there, the first Preview was the Windows 8.0 Preview. Its a second Preview but it's not a second 8.1 Preview.

    I don,t think i'll be able to update to 8.1 ?
    I think it's being installed through Windows store and apart from the fact the Store has 1000's of pointless apps

    It wont even load since i installed all the updates (It Worked before i installed from windows update)

    It was a fresh install to an SSD
