Microsoft will make Windows 8.1 preview release available to anyone starting today. If you want to get your beloved start button back, today is the day. The final version of Windows 8.1 (aka Windows Blue) comes sometime late this year.
Microsoft offers Windows 8.1 in the Windows Store as an app update and as an ISO image to create a dual boot setup. According to Softpedia, the ISO download link will be http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?LinkId=301772. This Windows 8.1 download link is not live yet though.
New features in Windows 8.1 include Boot to desktop, Improved IE, Device Lockdown, Work Folders, Workplace Join, Open MDM, Mobile Device Management, Web Application Proxy, RDS Enhancements, NFC Tap-to-pair Printing, Wi-Fi Direct Printing, native Miracast and many more. You can find out more about what is new in Windows 8.1 in this overview on Microsoft.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
