The Windows 9 upgrade might not be as free as initially believed

After a report last week revealed the President of Microsoft Indonesia confirmed that the Windows 8 to Windows 9 upgrade will be available free download, Myce has discovered that not all current Windows 8 users may be entitled to a free Windows 9 update. Well-known Russian leaker WZOR, the source of various Windows 9 leaks in the past, says that just those customers who have purchased a Windows 8 (or Windows 8.1) copy will qualify for free upgrades. Users who have purchased a computer with Windows 8 preinstalled (OEM version of the software) will have to pay a fee. More →

Windows 9 can’t come out soon enough for Microsoft

We know that Microsoft is very eager to move past the less-than-enthusiastic reception that greeted Windows 8 and introduce us to Windows 9.

Microsoft reportedly mulls rebranding Windows in the most confusing way possible

Microsoft would understandably like to move on from Windows 8 as quickly as possible, which is why the company is so eager to show off Windows 9 in the coming weeks. However, Softpedia’s sources say that Microsoft might be so eager to rebrand its flagship software program that it might end up calling Windows 9 just plain-old “Windows” instead. And that’s not all: The company may end up branding Windows RT and Windows Phone as “Windows” as well. Needless to say, Softpedia thinks this could create even more confusion for prospective buyers.
