Microsoft to make the Windows 9 upgrade very affordable

Windows 9 will play multiple roles when it hits the market in early 2015, and in addition to providing users with a much more familiar working environment and new features, the new OS will also help Microsoft itself get over the Windows 8 failure.

Recently, it has emerged that Windows 9 might be available free of charge for Windows 8.1 users, and now it appears that the company is also preparing a special offer for those running Windows 7.

According to Russian leaker WZor, who has already provided us with several accurate details on Windows 9, Microsoft is planning to make the upgrade from Windows 7 to this new operating system very affordable.

Although not yet confirmed, a $30 (€24) upgrade is very likely to be offered to those on Windows 7 who want to switch to Windows 9, with the whole process very likely to be conducted all automatically, without the need for a clean install.

Mmmmmm.... That sounds reasonable, even cheaper than my pre-release Win-7 offer - Not having to upgrade my dinosaur PC will be a big bonus too

Then again knowing MS, I'll wait to see it in print before believing it

Looks like MS is now skipping 9 and releasing 10 instead. No idea why the number change. BBC News - Microsoft unveils Windows 10 system with Start Menu
