This Preview version helps you in testing new features and improvements present in Microsoft’s upcoming OS Windows 8.1. Actually Windows 8.1 is an update for Windows 8 and Windows RT OS. It’ll fix many annoyances and issues present in Windows 8 and will try to make Windows 8 a perfect OS for Desktops as well as Tablets.


But currently Windows 8.1 is under development and its free Preview version is just a testing build which might contain bugs and issues. That’s why its not recommended to use it as a primary OS at the moment. There are many people who are waiting for final RTM release of Windows 8.1 so that they can install it in their computer systems.

We told you earlier that Microsoft may release Windows 8.1 final RTM version in the end of August 2013 and guess what, we were right.

Today Microsoft has announced at official Windows blog that Windows 8.1 RTM will be available for OEM partners in late August. That means MSDN and TechNet subscribers will also get their Windows 8.1 RTM downloads ready in August 2013.

General Availability (GA) date has not been announced yet but you should expect it in October or November 2013.

Microsoft has also mentioned that they will post more about Windows 8.1 RTM release schedule in coming months, so stay tuned with us.

PS: For people who don’t know about RTM term, it stands for “Release To Manufacturing” which means the final version of a software.
