    I don't really understand how this update is going to be rolled out.

    Is it the same update for both RT and Non-RT devices? Will they get the update at the same time? Will they be installed the same way?

    Won't be the same update for RT and non-RT devices, but featureset should be similar.
    They should get the update at the same time.
    They will most likely be installed the same way.

    Hope that helps.

    you need to install an update on the windows site Windows 8.1 Preview - Microsoft Windows once you are done installing that update you will be prompted to restart. On the reboot your machine will notify you that the update to 8.1 is available. You will click the link and go.

    This issue also exists for me and my basic Microsoft email account. The Mail app on the Start screen automatically had it set up, but when I configured the same email account on the desktop Outlook, it could not work. I don't know why.
