A Free Version of Windows 8.1 Could Be Coming, But At What Cost

PowerLeveled | Looking to break out against the rise of Android and iOS tablets, as well as the falling costs of the Macintosh OSX platform, Microsoft is currently experimenting with a fully free version of Windows 8.1. What could this mean for the future of Windows - and Microsoft as a whole? (Microsoft, Software, Windows)

This is an interesting concept for sure. Guess we will just have to wait and see what comes out of it for sure.

Windows 8 is bad and should have been free to begin with.

No. No. Windows 8 - press the windows key. click. you're done.

There's no way that Windows 8 is bad, you just need to invest your time on it.

Wheres the free apple
JoeIsMad  +   709d ago
Apple OSX isn't free, but it did just get a price drop. If you read the article you'll see that's kind of EXACTLY why they are working with the free option...

Don't know what made them think so that it will increase the usage of Windows 8.
gamernova  +   708d ago
They're doing it because Apple offers their OS for free.
JoeIsMad  +   708d ago
Apple's OS is only a free upgrade from the latest version of OSX. Windows already has the 8.1 update available for free to 8.0 users - which is effectively the same thing OSX is doing.

ROQFrost  +   708d ago
Yeah. I agree. Direct X 7 was awesome!

Win 8 is easily MS' best OS.
