    It likely all hinged on Microsoft selling them the media with no lenience, and that fell though for some reason. Somebody changed their mind, didn't like the deal, who knows. Maybe they didn't get enough pre orders to make them actually want to bother?

    How can something that was never released, be discontinued? It appears that, for some reason, Microsoft was not ready to make this product available in this format.

    why bother selling/paying for 8.1 when 8.2 is around the corner? that could be the reason it was pulled too.
