Microsoft is getting ready to roll out its Update 2 for the latest Windows 8.1 operating system this month. Rumours point to a launch date set for the 12th of August, which makes sense since it corresponds with the company’s Patch Tuesday rollout.

There is also word that Redmond is preparing for a MSDN launch on the 15th of August, 3 days after the update will get the update through Windows Update. Since Microsoft is still keeping a tight lip on this, there is no official confirmation for the given information. However, the rumours make sense at some level, even though people expect a MSDN launch before the update reaches Windows Update.

The Update 2 is said to only bring performance and security improvements. Head of OS division at Microsoft, Terry Myerson, said at the company’s BUILD conference that the new update will bring the long-awaited Start menu and options to run Metro apps in dedicated windows right on the desktop.

This promise is said to have been changed, since Microsoft is said to be focusing more on its Windows 9 operating system, which is expected to bring many more new features aside from the aforementioned ones.

While the Windows 9 preview version is said to come along with the Cortana personal assistant for desktop, it would make sense for Microsoft to divert all resources into its newest OS. As for the Update 2, the coming weeks should bring more concrete and official information about it.
