The download is not currently live at this time but should go up later today.
Steve Ballmer alluded to a different link but that’s not distributing the ISO’s yet.
Here is the new link.
Windows 8.1 will bring many new features to the platform including the option to boot directly to the desktop and the start button will return as well.
