    I'm waiting for someone to release an ISO image so I can do a clean install rather than the update. Microsoft is saying they have no plans to release one, but you know it will show up somewhere.

    Nothing new on TechNet, not yet, not for me anyway. The RTM has been up since 9.9.2013 I believe. I'm hoping a new image gets released with the rollup included. My laptop and desktop are all ready running 8.1. It will just be my wife's laptop that will get the notification. I haven't decided yet if I'll byte or not on that PC. All she does is FaceBook, Google, and e-mail. I might just let sleeping dogs lie.

    @ jimbo45

    Thanks for starting this thread. You beat me to it. It'll be a hot one.

    @ acr731

    Hoping for an ISO as well. I think it will show up.

    @ Kerry

    Go for it!

    Windows 8.1


    Running a clean install of 8.1 RTM w/previous authentication via a work-around. No notice from the Windows store yet (and maybe I won't get one) but I did find that 3 Windows Updates that were available and they installed OK:

    Update: I'm guessing someone got some kind of notification based on the lagging responsiveness of the Windows Store App:

    Or maybe they all are just "browsing."

    I'm downloading it right now. A large Windows 8.1 upgrade tile magically appeared in the Store a little after 7:00 ET. I don't have the world's fastest Internet connection, so it's going to take a while...

    No such Win 8.1 option available from the Windows Store (for me). I guess I'm already there so it looks like my clean install with with previous authentification actually worked...

    PSA: Windows 8.1 update is now available as a free download for Windows 8 users

    Today's the day: October 17th, the day Microsoft starts rolling out Windows 8.1. And right now, the minute this post first went live, is 7AM ET, the exact minute the OS update will start appearing in the Windows Store as a free download
