    MSFT to Release Low-Cost/Free Windows 10 with Bing branding


    Intel plans to launch a device running Windows 10 with Bing

    Microsoft is working with partners to bring cheaper devices to the market and help tackle the growth of Google Chromebooks, and part of this plan is Windows 10 with Bing, a special version of the new operating system that would only be addressed to OEMs.


    As was the case with Windows 8.1, Windows 10 with Bing will be a Windows 10 SKU available exclusively for PC makers and will be offered at a very low cost or even free of charge.

    This is a good move actually. Not everyone will be able to afford the $100+ they're asking and Bing isn't that bad.

    This will be great for people to use as an inexpensive remote control for their Smart Houses(Internet of Things IoT) Also Bing is only set as default, you can change it, of course then you'll have problems using some services. I've been a Bing fan since it's inception.

    I picked up a couple of Intel Compute Sticks a few weeks back with Windows 8 with Bing on them, I've not had chance to try them out yet though.

    I've read some of the initial reviews, and people were not impressed. Of course they were expecting a new super computer or something. But they're getting better: http://www.pcworld.com/article/29309...is-winter.html

    Hi there

    Smart move actually -- maybe they could port it to Windows Phone too -- I just wish Ms could get the Phone maker(s) to get better handsets --that's what puts me off a Windows phone (plus a few Banks don't seem to want to deal with Windows phones for their mobile banking apps).

    Cheers

    I'm guessing that the comment relates to the lack of a way to clean install Windows 8.1 with Bing on a computer you bought. '8.1 With Bing' isn't an option in the Media Creation tool for 8.1, and the 8.1 Core version doesn't work with those keys.

    So if you bought a PC with 8.1 Bing you haven't got a way to clean install 8.1, unlike the other 8.1 versions, without paying for a new licence / MSDN etc.

    Edit: Unless there's a way to do it which I've not figured out?

    That's a hard ISO to get. It's not listed on MSDN either, not for me anyway. You'd have to get it from the OEM, if they do that, they may just stick you with recovery media. Or resort to bit torrent etc.
