    Windows 9 is definitely the next big thing happening for Windows users, with many people close to the matter revealing more or less exciting tidbits pointing to features of the upcoming operating system.

    Nothing has been confirmed so far and Microsoft goes on with a secrecy that's really killing us, especially when thinking that Windows 9 isn't the only project coming out of Redmond. Both Windows 8.1 Update 2 and Windows 8.1 Update 3 are also said to be in the works as we speak.

    But let's take everything once at a time to demonstrate that Microsoft has apparently worked out a plan that might really have a chance to succeed and finally move users to its modern platform.

    There's that "pay a fee if you want to part again". It's sounding like you can upgrade to 8.1 update X and keep your old 8.0 key. You just won't get Windows 9 for free with that key. Or "for a fee" buy an 8.1 update X product key that will also get you Windows 9 for free when it comes out. If your already running 8.1 with an 8.1 key, Windows 9 will be a free upgrade. That's how I read it anyway. It's still any bodies guess though, as its still just rumors.

    Personally, I plan to wait until W9 comes out and see if they offer a special promotion for it like they did when W8 first came out.

    I have an MSDN account so its no big deal to me. Confusing as hell, but no big deal really. I'll be trying Windows 9 one way or the other.
