.NET won’t even install for me, tried the add features & a offline installer, neither produced a working .NET 3.5
Thus no apps that need it will work :x
Using (W7) compatibility mode doesn't help for me either.

I noticed that this build 9385 x86 installs a upgraded Movie Moments version 9394 (the pink "Take a video" & "Browse" buttons are covered by the About bar on the side).

Windows Blue hides 4K display support, tons of new features, developer says

For all the controversy surrounding Windows 8, it's a solid OS under the hood. And based on a list of API clues discovered by a former Nokia and Silverlight developer, it should only get better with the Windows Blue update.

Based on an extensive examination of the software APIs found within Windows Blue (now offically called Windows 8.1 by Microsoft), developer Justin Angel compiled a lengthy list of more than 25 features that he says will be included in the updated OS: the possibility of ultra-HD "4K" screen support, lock-screen calls, HDR photo support, better multi-screen formatting, and much more.

Angel teased out the new features by examining the APIs he found in the leaked build of Windows 8.1 (version 9385), which appeared online at the beginning of May. Other Microsoft watchers have installed and played around with the leaked OS—Paul Thurrott published a thorough examination of its forward-facing features—but Angel's API deep-dive reveals even more hidden secrets.

Got a email from Microsoft today saying that a Public Preview of Windows 8.1 will be available June 26. Wow it just occurred to me that they are going back to their roots with the names, Windows 3.11 for workgroups; what a great OS that was (-:

I snagged the x86 & x64 .ISOs from TechNet also.
Installing took awhile as I had to jump thru around 6 hoops to get past the "MS account" setup, finally did though & am using a local account like I previously have.

I also was finally able to install .NET 2.0 & 3.0 through the WU (choice), so PRO's DBP 1.1 installed in (W7) compatibility mode & runs great!

A few new images (beta fish for 1) & easy to setup a custom Start screen.

Edit: This preview is build 9431
