 If you see news about build 9600.16xxx, then it won't be the final release(RTM) - according to a post by @wbpluto(the same MS guy who posted screen-shots of build 9418), it will be build 9600.170xx or 9600.17xxx. :)

 

 .... WZOR had said 9600.16610 is in RTM Escrow, but if it is still in development stage, then there would be a chance that the "new features" in WP8.1 would also appear in the 2014 Update.

With all the changes in update 1 they should just bump the build number like they did with service packs before.

For win7SP1, it got the new build no,. 7601 in the pre-release stage:

beta: 7601.16537
RC: 7601.17105 
RTM: 7601.17514
So it's unlikely that MS had prepared to give win8.1 2014UD a new build no.

With the amount of changes in update 1, they should make it just 8.2. This update has changes that is really good, so a bump in the number would be great. Plus Windows 8.1 update 1 just sounds stupid.

The rumor inside MS was 8.11, there never was any speculation of 8.2, it's just some imagination/invention by journalists. :)

They ought to call it 'Windows 8.11 for Workgroups'.

jeez the phenomenon known as "we can't name our own damn updates acording to a fixed naming convention".... They are thinking:  "should we call it: w8.1 update 1. or w8.2 or w8.11 or w.8.1.1"

If they want it to be such a touchscreen OS, maybe they should follow the naming convention of the other touchscreen-first OS's and name it 8.1.1  :whistle:
