You know what this means? MDT 2013 will be available around that time. If you’re still deploying that archaic OS known as XP, don’t bother. MDT 2013 does NOT support it or Vista for that matter. The Win ADK 8.1 release doesn’t support either, and MDT 2013 will only support ADK 8.1. If I had to guess, I would expect MDT 2013 either the week before, or shortly after the new OS is shipped. If you remember however, 8.1 Preview and MDT 2013 Preview were released on the same day, so we’ll see.
