Rumor Windows 8 users can free update to windows 9?

They are really trying to move more people into their software distribution network where they have your info on what you purchased, who you are. Personal info r/t the sales and such when you give them that info. Many buy OEM computers. This info isn't part of MS. This gives them info and you join their " store" More sales possibilities. I am sure it isn't costing them much in dev cost and that is offset by companies that purchase OEM licenses to put on the computers you buy.. In the end publicly they look good.

Personally I don't like the look of the start button but that's purely aesthetic and I'm willing to bet that there'll be something to change that.

 

As for the actual deal, it looks good on paper but this is Microsoft we're talking about so I wouldn't be surprised to see something that assfucks the consumer hidden away somewhere in that deal

It's rumored it will be in the normal update as you always update not a register update at there store no article mention this way unless ive missed something?

 

If its a registered account at there store i'll wait for oem version and don't update my win 8.1.

 

This is whats known at moment as truth how up grade go

==================

Once Windows 9 is released all the end-users needs to do is to hit windows update, after which Windows 9 will be installed automatically. Microsoft is holding a secret event on September the 30th and it is expected that that they will launch the successor of Windows 8 that was developed under codename Threshold.

==================

@Ritualclarity,

 

And as if Apple-Google-Sony-Facebook-Amazon and name all those companys are not $$$$ same like MS lol

 

MS windows you can still change if you want to your liking try do that with iOS from apple freedom as you have with windows.

 

There all crooks but windows is by far best for gaming.

 

I wish linux was more open to gaming but there not so Windows it is.

 

Apple will never come into my house over my dead body there just as evil as microsoft only problem with Apple is more expensive and less open source.

Valve, EA (lol) and others said that win 8 is toxic. It is all you said, and more. One ring to rule them all.

I work with windows 8.1 now for 4 months now not that bad or difficult to use you get eventually use to it as with most new things, you don't even have to put a win7 shell over it not realy needed it easy to use.

 

But im still in many ways favor windows 7 over windows 8.1.

 

Windows 9 go back to the permanent desktop it's not related anymore to any tablet or smartphone design it's pure desktop again plus in many ways it go back to old windows 7 we loved so much.

 

Some things like the live tiles in the start will be left over of the windows 8 But never the dumb design of wondows 8 anymore stupid start page or dumb sidebar pop up if you mouse go there, or insanely stupid left down corner to go to start page which not always work as intended which confirmed windows 8.1 is still tablet design.

 

Be gone windows 8 or 8.1 your an abomination that should never have hatched hehe.

 

I welcome windows 9 :)

Maybe Windows 9 Will Be The OS That Windows 8 Should Have Been ....  Same As Windows 7 Being The OS That Vista Should Have Been ...... See A Pattern Anyone Or Is It Just Me ?

 

Win 98  ----- Fantastic OS

Win ME ----- Not Great

Win XP ------ Fantastic OS

Vista    ------ Not Great

Win 7   ------ Fantastic OS

Win 8+ 8.1 -- Not Great

Win 9 -------- ???????

 

At The End Of The Day All Microsoft Really Care About Is Profits .....  If They Didnt They Would Try And Force You Update Your Windows OS

By Stopping Support For A Previous OS ......... Well Thats How It Seems To Me .............

This is more the way I see it-

 

Win 98  ----- Fantastic OS

Win ME ----- Public beta for the next version

Win XP ------ Fantastic OS

Vista    ------ Public beta for the next version

Win 7   ------ Fantastic OS

Win 8+ 8.1 -- Public beta for the next version

Win 9 -------- ???????

HAHAHAH!

 

Microsoft just announced Win 10, will be released later in 2015.    When asked about the name, and skipping 9, they said that they felt 10 was a much better name, or some such nonsense.

 

 

So no wonder Win 9 is free, its not going to exist!

 

Thanks Easter Bunny!!

I've been on windows 8.1 Enterprise for a very long time now, and i don't get why almost everyone are butthurt with it. I get 10 extra fps on bf4, skyrim, and other texture intensive games in win8.1 EN rather than win7 ultimate, start up is fast if you set it up right. I like the customization my desktop and start menu is bedazzled lol. Oh and lots of more compatibility in future games and computer hardware. + you don't need to look for your cd drivers when you are formating win8 automatically has them, but you gotta update them.

Here's an Englsih link from Sweclockers, but the interface from windows 8 will remain (though the start menu will come back).

As long as it gets rid of the touchscreen, I'll happily download the upgrade. Though with the next computer I'm building, it's windows 7 64bit for me with linux mint on a bootable drive!

 

They won't be doing that unfortunately, though it will be less apparent on desktop(apps run in windows and tiles are now part of the start menu). They're continuing with the one OS for all devices.
