    Windows 9 is expected to launch in April 2015, according to some people close to the matter, but aside from a few features that could be included in the operating system, no other details have been provided until now.

    Pricing clearly remains one of the biggest dilemmas, not only for users, but also for the Redmond-based tech giant Microsoft, as the company needs to find the perfect mix that would lead to record sales of its operating system and skyrocketing adoption for the very first days of availability.

    Free to PC venders? That would make it (the OS) free to anyone buying a Windows based PC. That would be one way to get it out there. Interesting thought.

    Don't think they will make it free, lowering the cost might increase their profit.
    They are trying to generate revenue from other things, skype, office, and others, when this gets rolling then we may see Windows OS prices drop.

    I cant see Windows 9 being free but a price drop in Microsoft software would be very welcome.

    Is it free if you buy a Surface? If it wasn't it likely is now with all the price drops and discounts.

    I'm in the camp of those who don't think Windows 9 will be free. However, if they offered a special promotion price like they did when Windows 8 first came out, I would be more inclined to purchase it. Otherwise I'll stay with my dual boot of Windows 7 and 8.1, until it's time for a new computer.
