MSDN and TechNet users raged due to delay in release of Windows 8.1 RTM

Microsoft announced that they won't release Windows 8.1 RTM for MSDN and TechNet users due to privacy problems. MSDN nd TechNet users are raged because they used get the RTM version of Windows before the general availability so that they can test and develop apps in the stable environment of the OS and release it with Windows when it releases to the general masses.Check the comments section of this post to see how frustrated are the users of MSDN and TechNet.Here are some of the comments made by different users.

"Microsoft's decision to withold Windows 8.1 RTM to developers and volume licence customers is a significant mistake.   It further discourages developers and enterprises to adopt it's new operating system by introducing unnecessary delays and roadblocks to readiness activities.  It really defies logic. " 
 "So developers are supposed to spend their time developing in the 8.1 Preview, and then do it all over again when the final release hits the streets? If the final 8.1 version is ready enough for hardware vendors, it is damn sure ready enough for app developers. What is the point of paying big money for MSDN when anyone off the street will get it the same day?"
