Windows 8.1 Update 1 leaked, download it now

The upcoming BUILD conference will unveil the next update to Windows 8.1 which would be named as Windows 8.1 Update 1. But the geeks have already made an unofficial download link for you. They say:

We reported earlier this week that Microsoft had finalized Windows 8.1 Update 1.  The update is likely to be officially unveiled at the Build Conference in early April but the Redmond software giant has given no official date for a release.  Most of the features in the release have been known from earlier leaks for some time now.

Links to download the final updates through Windows Update have been discovered.  The updates can be downloaded via a registry change or directly downloading the patches. (Update: it appears the registry hack does not work anymore) It appears that these links are intended for internal Microsoft employees have been testing or “dogfooding” Windows 8.1 Update 1.
