Once again, Microsoft is listening to feedback from its customer base. Today, Steve Guggenheimer has posted on his blog that MSDN and TechNet subscribers CAN DOWNLOAD the RTM bits for Windows 8.1 TODAY. You can read the entire post on Guggs blog.
We heard from you that our decision to not initially release Windows 8.1 or Windows Server 2012 R2 RTM bits was a big challenge for our developer partners as they’re readying new Windows 8.1 apps and for IT professionals who are preparing for Windows 8.1 deployments. We’ve listened, we value your partnership, and we are adjusting based on your feedback.
Additionally, you can download the Visual Studio 2013 Release Candidate from here.
PLEASE MARK YOUR CALENDARS.
October 18, 2014 is Windows 8.1 General Availability day!!!
