Hello Sixwheeler,

The Windows 8.1 public preview will be available on June 26th as an update through the Store. If you use install this public preview version, then you will have to reinstall Windows 8 to be able to upgrade to the final version of Windows 8.1 sometime later this year.

Microsoft goes public with Windows 8.1 upgrade policies

But yeah the thread for this is over at eightforums: Microsoft goes public with Windows 8.1 upgrade policies

It'll be basically like refreshing Windows 8 when upgrading to the final Windows 8.1 release.
