No, not everyone would've known this, especially since this is misleading and inaccurate. It isn't Win 8.1 that is required but the Win 8.1 update 1 that will be required in order to receive future updates. That means someone running Win 8 needs to first upgrade to Win 8.1 as the OP stated but then also needs to ensure that the Win 8.1 update 1 gets installed as well.

Many people are confusing the two but they are distinct updates.
