Microsoft's "oh crap, we'd better update our new OS because everyone hates it" otherwise known as Windows 8, is to soon get updated to Windows 8.1, but now there's a new leaked version online in the form of build 9477.
Windows 8.1 build 9477 was seeded to OEMs three weeks ago, and has since leaked online. Microsoft will unleash Windows 8.1 to the world on October 18, and will be a free downloadable update to those running Windows 8. Windows 8 build 9477 is in Chinese, and "available online". This should be one of the last leaks we'll see, but there have been sightings of build 9484, too.
We're close, and hopefully consumers enjoy Windows 8.1 more because if not, it looks like Windows 9 could take a big step backwards, or a totally different jump forwards.
