The company’s Steven Sinofsky in a blog post stated that the tech giant managed “to deliver these ‘post-RTM’ updates sooner than a [traditional] service pack.” For MSDN and enterprise customers, the updates are available already while for the rest of the world, the wait is until Windows 8 hit the market on October 26th. The update includes:

  • Increased power efficiency to extend battery life
