win8china: Windows 8.1 EEAP Build 9391 "Develpoer Preview" Released to OEM's

Earlier from PCPortal there was a report on a new "This PC" windows appearing on a win8.1 new build in place of the old "My Computer"; now if what win8china reporting is legit, this should be build 9391 released to OEM's as "Developer Preview"]

If you doubt if there is a build 9391, it has made a first appearance in the metadata files in an build 9385 WinJS(Windows Java Script) update:

You can rename "My Computer" to anything you want, such as "Not My Computer." I suppose Microsoft is just changing the default branding, although, really, drop the article. Just call it "Computer" or "PC."

No link needed: it stats that it's build 6000, but when you follow the SP logic, it should be build 6003

According to a comment at the Softpedia article, Vista SP3 Gets First Hotfix, every hotfix released after (or not included with) the prior Service Pack, had a higher number in the release notes.

Apologies for derailing the topic.

Sorry went out, and thanks to Ian for answering. Actually I guess everybody is more interested in build 9391, hopefully it will leak.

The Windows 8.1 preview will be available on June 26(it's all in Windows Blog and Neowin News), and there was a question that came to my mind:

AFAIK, the win8.1 RTM could be downloaded free thru Store and upgrade your licensed win8, or you can purchase a stand-alone pack, OK, that's no problem.

But for the Preview, in win7 and previous windows versions, when there is a SP beta, I could download and install it on my existing OS, it remains an activated OS with the current key.

But what happens in the leaked win8.1 build was, you install it with a preview key, and it got a time-bomb(presently it is Jan. 15, 2014); so, if it's the same with the 6.26 win8.1 preview, if I "upgrade" my win8(which is activated permently), it actually became a time-bombed preview OS!!

I think there was a similar scenario, in win7 beta, people could upgrade his Vista by editing the cversion file, and activate with the win7beta key, I haven't tried that so no idea what had actually happened, but for the win8.1 preview, if it has a working Store, I would surely prefer to install it over my win8 to enjoy all the new features. So hopefully MS would clarify on this point.

So this build isn't what the public will get in June, correct? Wonder if you can update from this version to the one in june.
