Although developer builds of Windows 8.1 have been floating around for some time, the first "official" consumer test release is set for June

Hot on the heels of Microsoft's announcement that it has sold 100 million Windows 8 licenses comes news that "Windows Blue", AKA Windows 8.1, will be available to test in June.
 
A public preview of Windows 8.1 will be made available for consumers to try out during Microsoft's BUILD conference, which will take place from June 26 to June 28.
 
Windows 8.1 is expected to bring back some semblance of the iconic "Start" button and will make an effort to ensure that customer feedback doesn't go unanswered. "We are being very real about what needs to change and changing it as thoughtfully and quickly as we can," said Windows Chief Julie Larson-Green.

“We're not sitting back and saying, they will get used to it.  We've considered a lot of different scenarios to help traditional PC users move forward as well as making usability that much better on all devices."
