    Windows 9 is still a work in progress at Microsoft and although the Redmond-based tech giant remains completely tight-lipped on the subject, details coming via unofficial channels revealed quite a lot of interesting tidbits about the next full Windows version.

    This time, Russian leaker WZOR is claiming that Windows 9 could be offered completely free of charge to a number of Windows 8.1 Update 2 adopters, in an attempt that's clearly supposed to move more users to this particular operating system version.

    Well, these sort of reports do rouse one's curiosity, if nothing else.

    I'm hoping they offer a discount similar to the one offered for the Win 8 upgrade.

    W7 Pro x64 | W10 IP x64 | Linux Mint VM

    I haven't long added W8.1 to my list of operating systems, a dual boot with my primary W7, so I doubt I'll be upgrading either with 9. I'm getting used to 8.1 and it's actually growing on me despite the amount of bult in stuff that has no use to a dedicated desktop user.

    9 interests me as much as W8.1 did but a triple boot is out of the question, problems lie that way. Maybe a VM to test it out if the price is good enough, but I seriously doubt M$ will be giving anything out for free.

    I doubt that Windows 9 will be free to anyone. There might be a discount for early converters but that's it.. FWIW

    LOL, I trust not a word written in Softpedia, it is a rumor, gossip, generating tabloid. They even admit they had to dig hard for this piece. Perhaps, Putin, made the leaker write it, that would add some spicy scandal to the mix.

    OK lets see if I got his right?
    One option for 8.0 users is to upgrade to 8.1 with update 1 though the Windows Store for free. And then do it all again to get 8.1 with update 2 for free. But no free Windows 9?
    The other option is to pay a "small" fee to go from 8.0 straight to 8.1 with update 2. And that fee also gets you Windows 9 for free when its released?

    Its so confusing it has to be true.
