Last week we talked about how, according to some sources, Windows 9 will not be called Windows anymore. Today, we’ve got some exciting news for Microsoft lovers! It appears that the tech giant is trying to make up for Windows 8 by giving the new Microsoft operating system, Windows 9, for free to all Windows 8 users. You heard that right, most likely Windows 9 will be free to anyone who already owns Windows 8!
Windows 9 Will be Free for Windows 8 Users
This rumor has been out there for quite some time, but it seems there is some truth to it. According to the Indonesian news site Detik.com, the new operating system from Microsoft is going to be free of charge to anyone who has Windows 8 on their computer and tablets. The update will be done automatically, which leaves some people wondering if this is the right way of approaching operating system updates.
Forcing an update doesn’t go well with many users, but in the case of Windows 8, many, if not all, are going to welcome the new operating system from Microsoft. It’s no secret that Windows 8 is Microsoft’s biggest flop and that many users still hate the OS, one year after it was launched.
The rumors are also saying that Windows 9 will be launched at the Microsoft San Francisco event on September 30 (tomorrow) and be available for the public at the beginning of 2015 (most likely in April).
