Microsoft Releases Windows 8.1 for Hardware Partners Ahead of October 18th Launch

Microsoft has started working on its all new Windows OS just 10 months before. Now the tech giant has announced the completion of its new software. Yet it will not be generally available now. Microsoft is just giving its OEMs an early access to Windows 8.1 final version. Rest has to wait till its official public launch set for October 18th. 

Microsoft team has just proudly announced that "we have started releasing Windows 8.1 and Windows RT 8.1 to our hardware partners. In many ways, this marks a new day at Microsoft, reflecting a number of rapid release firsts."

Microsoft is actually counting on its hardware partners to give any final touches required by them. This OEM release of Windows 8.1 and Windows RT 8.1 will help the company to test QA before the launch of GA (general availability) version on October 18th.

Microsoft states that October 18th "is the date when Windows 8.1 will be broadly available for commercial customers with or without volume licensing agreements, our broad partner ecosystem, subscribers to MSDN and TechNet, as well as consumers."

About the Geek Mind

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.
