Microsoft has announced that Windows 8.1 is ready to ship to computer and tablet makers, saying the update had reached the all-important RTM, or "release to manufacturing" milestone.

Windows 8.1 will be available to current Windows 8 users for download on Oct. 17 in the U.S.. Windows 8.1-powered devices and the update itself will be available on October 18.

In addition to new personalization, the return of the Start button and other features, Windows 8.1 gives Microsoft and its partners more flexibility to build smaller tablets than the original raft of Windows 8 devices.
