Microsoft is all set to release its upcoming Windows mobile OS version Windows 8.1 for public in October as reported by ZDnet. The release to manufacturing (RTM) build of Windows 8.1 will be given to OEMs and Microsoft’s partners by end of this month, so that they can complete the testing to see if their drivers are compatible by the time Microsoft releases this update to public.
Windows 8.1 includes a number of updates, but the most talked features are likely the ability to boot and log in directly to the Desktop view, and the return of something that resembles a Start button but functions bit differently.
Microsoft will finalise the Operating System by the end of this month, so that they could have some gap to roll out few updates and fix any bugs by they go for final release this October, so that the consumer could get a problem free OS. This report has been verified by The verge also.
