Watermarked as it's not activated.

You can use regedit to show watermark(so as to show the version is win8RTM 9600)

 

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\CONTROL PANEL\DESKTOP - PaintDesktopVersion

I notice there were some "Russian win8.1RTM screen-shots" that appeared in some sites, this is what @Painter(admin of PCPortal) commented:

Also,I read something about "English apps in win8china's screens", I don't know the real reason, but @arseny92 had once explained why some apps could not be carried by a preview-to-RTM-upgrade, it's because apps for pre-releases and RTM's are developed in different "formats"(don't know the exact words), so this could be the cause
