    Default Windows 8 users can upgrade to Windows 9 for free

    A spokes person from Microsoft Indonesia had a little slip of the tongue and said that Windows 8 users can upgrade to Windows 9 for free. Two rumors are now debunked, yes Microsoft will be announcing Windows 9 and yes you get to have a free upgrade.


    Once Windows 9 is released all the end-users needs to do is to hit windows update, after which Windows 9 will be installed automatically. Microsoft is holding a secret event on September the 30th and it is expected that that they will launch the successor of Windows 8 that was developed under codename Threshold.



    From leaked screenshots it is apparent that Microsoft will introduce a new start menu with live tile integration, Modern UI apps with windows display and notification system. Microsoft will also inject the digital assistant Cortana into Windows 9.

    Screenshots are from an old Microsoft presentation. That was supposed to be included in 8.1.
