Windows 8.1 build 9391 Developer Preview reportedly being distributed to OEMs

After a hoard of other leaked build versions - the latest being build 9385 - Microsoft is expected to release a public preview of Windows 8.1 at Build 2013. 

WinBeta (via @windows4live) is reporting that build 9391 has been released to Microsoft's OEM partners for testing as a "Developer Preview." Not much is known about build 9391, as even screenshots haven't been leaked yet confirming it's existence. Win8China.com reports that this version of Windows 8.1 will not likely be the one that Microsoft unveils at Build, backing up claims by prominent Microsoft watchers who suspect that other builds will be compiled between now and June. 

When Windows 8.1 becomes available to the public, it is expected that it will be released via the Windows Store and will come with a whole host of changes to the core operating system, possibly even including the return of the start button

Windows 8 is off to a solid start from a sales standpoint, selling at the same rate as Windows 7. 100 million licenses have been sold since October 2012, which is roughly 15 million licenses per month, or 45 million per quarter.
