Microsoft Changes the RTM Concept for Windows 8.1

Just as rumored, Microsoft is set to continue work on Windows 8.1 even though the operating system has reached RTM, in an attempt to provide a greatly improved experience to early adopters.

Microsoft’s Brandon LeBlanc has confirmed in a short tweet that new updates will be delivered to partners, while the company is working on a new set of updates to be delivered to end users ahead of the October launch. “RTM is different now as we ship updates faster for Windows, meant for partners while we refine for customers for GA,” he said on Twitter.

According to some previous reports, Microsoft wants to deliver the latest Windows 8.1 updates to end users three days before general availability via the built-in Windows Update feature. The public launch of the OS update will take place on October 18, while Windows 8 users will be allowed to download it free of charge from the Store one day earlier.
