Windows 9 will be free upgrade for Windows 8 users

Windows 9 logoWhen Apple introduced OS X Mavericks, they also provided it as a free upgrade to OS X users which is a nice change of pace where previously they charged customers for upgrading to a newer version of the operating system. It has been rumored that Microsoft could be following in Apple’s footsteps with Windows 9.

Well it seems that Microsoft Indonesia’s President Andreas Diantoro has pretty much confirmed it. Speaking to Indonesian publication Detik (via BGR), Diatoro was quoted as saying that Windows 9 will be provided as a free upgrade to existing Windows 8 users. It is unclear if it will only be limited to Windows 8 users or all Windows users, but for now it looks like it will only be for Windows 8 users.

He goes on to state that it will be extremely easy for Windows 8 users to upgrade to Windows 9, kind of the same way that OS X users upgrade their operating system through the Mac App Store. Microsoft has yet to officially announce Windows 9, or whatever it is called, but with an event being held on the 30th of September, we guess we won’t have to wait too long to find out the details, so be sure to check back with us this Tuesday!
