Note: Google translation made a small mistake: ".....completed before April 23.", the orignal Chinese text is "23rd of this month".

I guess some guys might have missed this WZOR's tweet, if it also applies to the RTM, then you don't need to worry about removing 9600.16610 update packs :)

both msu and images this time
new names for images as well as keys
possible msu leak depends on tests
upd1 3 msu need to be installed
upd2 msu can be added to server r2 2012 image
upd3 looks like 4 msu need to be installed in case of 8.1 rtm

installation order for 8.1 rtm
1. KB2919442 restart
2. KB2919442-1 restart
3. KB2919355 restart
4. KB2932046 restart
5. 17025 :)
 
Note: REgistry key displays "17025"; WZOR probably made a typo in his heading.

Doesn't sound like anything new in this build so what we've seen so far is probably what we get. I still think there will be a update 2 in the fall/winter before we start to talk Windows 9.

Nah, think about it, win9 will have a new kernel further slimed down (from NT6.3), more ram efficient, and works for all platforms(PC,phone,tablet); if if was started this year, then it won't RTM until 2016.

 

Rumor(heard from my end): After win8 RTM in 2012, one branch compiled 9220 codename blue, another branch made 9622 codename 9, targeted to RTM in 2014 - similar to WZOR's rumor, but I haven't heard about the DP/beta/RC thing that WZOR said.. :)

 

Rumor2: MS moved the whole win9 branch to Area 51(or was it Cheyenne Mountain? who knows :laugh: )

I have no doubt they started working on it already but it seems soon to me, they'd want to have a big event for any type of preview for Windows 9 but we know build is coming in April and that would be the time to show it off. So far build is looking like it'll be mostly WP and Xbox from what people are saying, so if 9 is in 2015 they can have another build just for it. Unless they want to have a second build later this year which could be a option since they've had multiple events in the past. Those have all more or less been folded into one now though, it'll be interesting to see, maybe they have just a Windows 9 event like they've had individual WP and Xbox events before?

If there's a big event coming in the fall then that'd be telling.

Is that yet another edition of Windows 8.1? If so, what's different about it, except the name?

I'm curious about this Win 9 RTM info being that the RTM signoff date is OCT this year... Really? Do I wait for OCT or just look to 8.1update 1?

 

:wacko:
