With the public preview builds of Windows 8.1 due out later this month
, a number of users are wondering how Microsoft plans to handle the upgrade.
At TechEd North America, officials shared some details on that topic in a session entitled "Windows RT in the Enterprise."
Microsoft officials have said previously that the company plans to deliver the public preview of Windows 8.1, codenamed "Blue," via the Windows Store
on June 26.
Microsoft Senior Product Marketing Manager Michael Niehaus reiterated that message in the RT in the Enterprise session on June 4. When the 8.1 preview is available, Windows 8 and Windows RT users will receive a Windows Update notification. That update will trigger the new bits to show up in the Windows Store, where potential testers will be able to read the description and choose whether or not to install.
