Windows 8.1 build 9471 has leaked which is the first leak in several months for the Windows 8.1 platform. This build, unlike some of the previous builds, is for the x64 architecture.
This is the first leak in what has been several dry months for Windows beta enthusiasts but if you are not wanting to risk it by downloading a leaked copy, Windows 8.1 should hit RTM in the next few weeks. Neowin has confirmed with an individual who has installed the build, that it is legitimate.
Windows 8.1 will bring quite a few new features to the table including the return of the Start button, enhancements to the Modern interface, and a bunch more. Steve Ballmer has referred to Windows 8.1 as a refined blend when making the comparisons of Windows 8.1 to coffee.
As with any leaked build, we will not post direct links to the content and know that installing any software from unofficial sources, is done at your own risk.
