    hi guys!
    ok, so the story is that I had Windows 8 kms activated then upgraded to WMC Professional with one of the free keys Microsoft gave out. In summer I've installed 8.1 preview and everything is all right.
    My question is: how can I revert back to windows 8 wmc professional or to upgrade to 8.1 RTM? This is a dilemma for me that I've been struggling with for the past few days :(
