    Nearly April --any news of Windows 8,1 update yet


    Hi there
    Title says it all --- I haven't even seen any leaks "at the usual places" yet --Ms really has got this one under wraps.

    (Of course who knows -- there could be last minute glitches with it).

    Cheers

    A leak at this stage would be superfluous.

    As I understand it, the full update will be with the normal bunch on the 8th April.

    It is expected to be available for MSDN subscribers on the 2nd April.

    Good news is that it will also be available as a WIndow 8.1 with update 1 incorporated, as an ISO to subscribers - but that is in the rumour category.

    Hi Dave
    Hopefully it will be on TechNet too -- still have a live subscription to that one -- I'll try it in a VM first though.

    Hey, Dave. I've got it on both my pc's now. I got it last Thursday from Microsoft before they killed the link. It is the final 8.1 Update 1, as I've heard. It will be on Windows Update on April 8th and it's supposed to be on MSDN on the 1st or 2nd. Probably the 2nd, as Microsoft love's Tuesday's and Thursday's for updates. Both my pc's are running great with it.

    Hi brkkab.
    Yes. I did install it from the Microsoft test release. I couldn't get too excited, and there appeared to be some suggested possible problems, when the final build came as an update (the download was very much the final version, but still an interim build. I decide to exercise caution and took it off again.
    But I do want to download the ISO and try a clean install -just to test the possibilities and, at the same time, have a bit of fun.

    Jimbo. Not sure about that one. I can see that TechNet have already dropped one or two new releases od other programs.. It would be a bit unfair, though. You've paid up, why should you be deprived.
