    Because they are semi-outdated and lack newest Update's updates

    I think they were removed because it was too confusing and the updates failed on a lot of people and caused hate and discontent! lol

    They were removed shortly after the Update was available on MSDN, I asked MS why and they said 'they were looking into it', didn't get any further response o_O
