    Many people from this forum are not American, so may not realize what journalistic integrity is here. Myself, I don't know what it is like in other parts of the world. For those who don't know what it's like here, when a journalist says something but won't reveal a source, it doesn't mean he's making it up. It means that he is protecting his source. Daniel gets many leaks. If he were to reveal just one, his pool of leaks would rapidly dry up. He isn't going to reveal his source no matter what people think. But at the same time, he also isn't going to make up things like this. He is a journalist, and has a reputation of reliable information to uphold. If he were to start throwing out stuff like this that he made up, soon enough WPCentral would have a grand total of seven readers.

    While you may want a source, Daniel isn't a fool. He's not going to make this stuff up, and he's not going to give up his source. In America, there have been journalists who have gone to jail rather than give up a source. It's that serious.

    I don't want that. What's the point of placing the pic behind the tiles so you can't see it? MS way is much better.

    I wonder, will Windows 8.1 update 1 will still be released on schedule? The two (8.1u1 and WP 8.1 preview) were originally rumored to happen on the same day and there was going to be a unified Windows store. Is any or all of that affected by this delay?

    This just confirms, You WONT get a preview build during \\build... Boo !

    As for the consumer experience team, this could take a week or 2, OR could take 1-2 months, depending on the bugs they find. If it was built almost bug free (and that pretty much never happens on a program with the scale of this), it could be sooner..

    Let's just hope it goes smooth and they find everything. I would HATE a rush job and we get bombed with bugs....
    they should open the consumer experience team to the consumers via enthusiast program!!! ;)

    For a background, i would like to see the option to change collors.
    Not like now just black and white
    Maybe automated with intervals.
    I use the same on my desktop.
    The same wallpaper, only the collors are changing.

    A picture as background sounds nice, but in fact its useless with all the tiles.

    It might sound condescending, but the way some people are going on about it, this is a necessary reminder. This is Mr Rubino we're talking about, and while he might joke around once in a while, it doesn't means he doing so now just because he isn't giving up his source.

    Maybe people should take a step back and realise a developer preview was never promised on April 2.

    Actually, America is quite exceptional.
    Without America, there would have been no Al Gore, and therefore NO Internet for your snarky comments.

    The U.S. was exceptional... once. The political, economical and scientific culture which once formed the foundation of what made the U.S. exceptional has either deteriorated (the first two) or stagnated (scientific relevance), allowing other nations to catch up. These days Brazil files more technologically relevant patents than the U.S. does

    That Al Gore had anything to do with the internet has long been debunked. The Internet is an offspring of U.S. cold war telecommunications technology (a network designed to be resilient in the face of nuclear attack), but that has existed since the 60's. What most people associate with the internet is more correctly refered to as the world wide web. That was created by a British scientist working at the Cern research facility in Switzerland.

    Hopmedic stated that he didn't know anything about journalistic practices and ethics outside the U.S. That may be uninformed, but it certainly isn't condescending!

    Having lived in over half a dozen countries myself, including the U.S., I'd say all western populations are pretty much identical when it comes to their expectations of journalism. Free speech, a journalists right to keep their sources confidential, and a common set of the 'journalist's code of ethics' are shared by all. In practice, journalistic integrity is a very mixed bag everywhere. Overall, the U.S. media landscape is no better than anywhere else. Sometimes it is worse. Often it is more diverse and more confusing. It is definitely more polarizing and ideologically driven than elsewhere in the west, but sometimes it is better too.

    but there's no need for spamning a Windows phone 8.1 update thread with such bull****s
    Not sure if all or just some of your remarks are sarcasm. WPC has a very international following. That is why I think debunking too much unjustified "we are #1" rhetoric, no matter for which nationality, is worthwhile. Understanding that the world outside the U.S. isn't an uncivilized mess (often the opposite is true) isn't a bad thing either.

    And now you're telling me that you were talking about jurnalism?
    You are a dumb, aren't you?

    Logic that this thread has gone off-topic, these dunbasses are talking about how great is their country into a topic about the 8.1 developer preview.
    And he tells me that I am not civilizate, but he hasn't any ideas of what is talknig about.

    It's not condescending at all. I know nothing about journalism in the rest of the world, and I shouldn't assume that others know anything about it here. So I haven't. Reading the posts here, it seems quite obvious that there are many who fall into the category of knowing very little about journalists, at least here in America.

    Additionally, I didn't say a word about America being exceptional, even though I know it to be true. It seems to me that I'm not the one who needs to get over himself.

    make a poll, ask the users and you will see that I am not what I am saying this, most who asked not want skin in the background tiles. Where these images were released most of the comments are that users actually wanted real background, and most misinformed still believe that this is build.
    WPCentral made the poll. Those for are almost 10 times those against.
