The official English version of Windows 8.1 Pro RTM build 9600 for x86 and x64 finally leaks onto the web. Many have tried out the Chinese version with a language pack, but it was causing too many problems to get to work. This is the official untouched ISO file and it is available for download in several sharing file sites.

Like I previously wrote, the Release To Manufacturing version includes all the changes found in the preview version of Windows 8.1, plus many of the changes and improvements we’ve seen in previous leaks. Although this is the “final version”, Microsoft is shipping the operating system now to manufacturers to keep improving the software before October launch, even so the company will continue providing updates after the official release.

The latest leak comes from the Russian leaker going with the name “WZOR”, and other Microsoft’s products like Windows Server 2012 R2 and others are also expected to show up in sharing file sites pretty soon.

The ISO download has a build this build number 6.3.9600.16384.WINBLUE_RTM.130821-1623. If you feel like trying the new version before it is officially release on October 18th, go ahead, I don’t link to the download site to respect intellectual property.

Also The Collection Book is hosting a large gallery with hundreds of screenshots about this version of Windows that you can check out here.
