Windows 8.1 Preview and Windows RT 8.1 Preview.

Microsoft announced the availability of Windows 8.1 Preview at BUILD 2013 conference in San-Fransisco today. This is the first major update to both Windows 8 and Windows RT.
Windows 8.1-a free update to Windows 8-is coming later this year.
Windows 8.1 Preview and Windows RT 8.1 Preview are prerelease versions of Windows 8.1. Windows 8.1 Preview and Windows RT 8.1 Preview include enhancements in personalization, search, apps, the Windows Store, and cloud connectivity, and have the security and reliability features.
Windows 8.1 Preview works great on the same hardware that powers Windows 8.
The final version should be RTM in August so that it can be widely available for the 2013 holiday season, roughly a year after the debut of Windows 8.
