More on Windows 8.1 with Bing

Ed Tittel Ed Tittel Profile: Ed Tittel


Russian leaker WZOR scores one more time, and scores BIG, with his disclosure of the documentation from the Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit for Windows 8.1 Update 1, which says the following about the topic of “Windows with Bing:”

“Windows 8.1 with Bing helps OEMs add Windows to low-cost devices while driving end user usage of Microsoft Services such as Bing and OneDrive,” the documentation states. “This edition of Windows sets Bing as the default search engine within Internet Explorer. Users will be able to manually change default search settings and install additional browsers of their choice. Windows 8.1 with Bing is based on the feature set available in Windows 8.1 Core and includes all of the latest updates, including Windows 8.1 Update. Windows 8.1 with Bing is available for 32-bit and 64-bit platforms. “

The documentation also clues us into official MS terminology for what’s been called Windows 8.1 Update 1 up until now: the official term is apparently “Windows 8.1 Spring 2014 Update” (which goes along with Windows Server 2012 R2 Spring 2014 Update, in keeping with the common code base for the client and server versions of this operating system).
