    Don't know exactly too. I read that at 4:00am in Redmond the update goes live (was said by Microsoft themselves) but if it is general available I don't know. Maybe it takes about a few days till every device can receive it, maybe all at once

    Word I've read is that it will be available in the US tomorrow. I read the 4am Redmond time too. If that's the case it should propagate nationwide in a few hours. I expect we'll all have it tomorrow.

    If I remember correctly... if you are at 8.1 preview, then you'll need a fresh install of 8.1. If you are at 8.1 RTM then there will be Windows updates available to bring it up to the "gold" code.

    The Store, you'll be prompted to update once it's released.

    Also, you MAY need to do a fresh install when updating to 8.1, but when I updated to 8.1 through the leaked image I was able to keep all my apps, files, and settings.

    It should be the same, least that's what I read. However, you'll lose all apps you have installed.

    Well, I have the 8.1 beta, but was prompted when I checked for updates that I had a 9.7GB "driver update". At least, I think it said 9.7GB. Long install, two restarts, a getting devices ready and now sitting on a screen with "Please wait while we install a system update".

    Doesn't appear to be any changes. Still show 8.1 preview, so I guess it was all in preparation for 8.1 final.

    According to the now live Windows 8.1 page (The new Windows - Microsoft Windows) Windows 8 users can upgrade via the Windows Store starting 10/18, not 10/17.

    No, the update is today.

    Tomorrow is the pre-order retail release date

    From the WP Central home page article

    How do I get Windows 8.1 onto my machine?If you are already running Windows 8, then all you need to do is sit back and relax. The update will be delivered to you free of charge via Windows Update.
    If you arent already running Windows 8, you have two options as of now. You can grab a copy of Windows 8 at your favorite retail store and wait for the update to hit shortly, or you can preorder a copy of Windows 8.1 and then receive it October 18th (a day after everyone else). Currently, Amazon.com offers a preorder of Windows 8.1 for $119.99.

    From the official Windows Blog:-

    I know a lot of folks are eager to find out when they will be able to get Windows 8.1. I am excited to share that starting at 12:00am on October 18th in New Zealand (thats 4:00am October 17th in Redmond), Windows 8.1 and Windows RT 8.1 will begin rolling out worldwide as a free update for consumers with Windows 8 or Windows RT devices through the Windows Store. Windows 8.1 will also be available at retail and on new devices starting on October 18th by market. So mark your calendars!
    Mark your calendars for Windows 8.1!

    Sitting with two machines here myself. Both machines are from Denmark, but are located in Norway right now. Desktop PC with Windows 8 pro found the update without any hiccups and is now downloading. Surface RT is unable to find the update right now.

    -- EDIT --

    I grew tired of waiting, so I installed the American language pack on my RT device like on my desktop, and look and behold, the RT was able to find the Windows 8.1 update right away through the app store right after.
