Can I install Windows 8 OEM after 8.1 is released and still update for free?

I'm building a computer in the next couple of weeks and was wondering if I could buy windows 8 OEM after 8.1 is released and then still update to 8.1 for free. I'm asking because windows 8 is cheaper ;D

  1. If you get it before the 8.1 release, would think so, after don't know
  2. After, yes. 8.1 is a free update to anyone who owns 8. Think of it like SP1. If you have 7 you would need to buy 8.1.
