Less than a year ago we were preparing to launch Windows 8, which introduced our vision of highly personalized mobile computing. And here we are today announcing the global availability of Windows 8.1. Windows 8.1 demonstrates our commitment to continuously improving the product to create a richer customer experience. We are excited to have customers start updating their devices today and getting to experience new Windows devices this holiday season.

Out now for free for everyone with Windows 8.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned that there is no obvious way (though there are ways) to install the update without associating a local account with a Microsoft one. I don't like the feeling. And really bad timing also (in the backsweep of the NSA scandal).
