Windows 8.1 update 1 shifted to April

Windows 8.1 update 1 was set to be released on March 11 but Microsoft has other ideas it seems, the update might be delayed till April. According Mary Jo Foley of ZDnet, the update will be shifted to April as Microsoft requires some more time to work on specific features. Well this might be true as I got the same answer from one of my source too.

Recently, Windows 8.1 update 1 leaked with all the expected features including the ability to pin apps to taskbar,Title bar in apps,power options in Start Screen and Enterprise mode in IE 11. The leaked build was compiled on January 14. It is sure, Windows 8.1 update 1 will be rolled out via Windows update rather than Store as many users faced problems when upgrading to Windows 8.1 via Store. April 8 is the most probable day as it is the patch Tuesday. It's also notable that Windows XP will retire on April 8.
