It is not often that an operating system leaks twice, but Microsoft has once again brought back the goodness, by putting up the download links to Windows 8.1 Update 1.
According to this report, you will need to install six different updates in the correct order to successfully deploy this new pack of improvements on your computer. These leaks are available for all supported platforms — x86, x64 and ARM based builds of the OS.
Redmond is shipping these updates in the form of MSU installers, as was the case last time around, and all you need to start installation is double-clicking to open the files. Reboots necessary in most instances.
Here it the correct order, with download links:
Windows 8.1 Update 1 x86
Windows 8.1 Update 1 x64
Windows 8.1 Update 1 ARM
No confirmation whatsoever that these files are from the final RTM version of Windows 8.1 Update 1, or Microsoft is just carrying out another test before launching the final product.
In any case, this looks like an improved version of the previous leak.
And since these are available on the official servers, there should be no issues with security. However, the company is expected to start shipping this new version via Patch Tuesday on April 8. MSDN subscribers will reportedly get access to these at the start of next month.
So get those download engines started if you want to deploy this newest flavor of Windows.
