Re: [WIN8] Windows 8.1 will be a Free Upgrade
I think I called it at least in part,.....
said by Octavean:Free is a great price indeed but not sure this free offering will really offer much.
Low cost or free makes a lot of sense if the Windows Blue upgrade is applicable only to Windows 8.
Those not on Windows 8 in theory could upgrade to Windows 8 at full price then upgrade to Windows Blue AKA Windows 8.1.
And no, I'm not kidding as you suggested before.
In order to be true to form and ape Apple at every turn I wouldn't be too surprised if Microsoft made Windows Blue AKA Windows 8.1 download only from the Microsoft store (again making Windows 8 a prerequisite). I'm not saying they will or even that I heard it somewhere (I didn't), only that it wouldn't be all that surprising,....
I'd very much like to try it out though,....
