Windows 9 To Be Delayed For Windows 8 Update 3



/ 2 years ago

We’ve heard a fair bit about Windows 8.1 updates and Windows 9 over the past couple of weeks and today we are getting some more details on both courtesy of Tom’s Hardware’s insider sources. The sources suggest that Windows 8.1 Update 3 does exist and will be arriving in Spring 2015. Windows 8.1 Update 2 will be arriving in August/September and Windows 8.1 Update 1 has already been released. The Windows 8.1 Update 3 launch window of “Spring 2015” means that Windows 9 “Threshold” has been pushed back to later on in 2015. The expected dates are now April 2015 for Windows 8.1 Update 3 and June for Windows 9.

Based on earlier rumours by WZOR it is expected that Windows 8.1 Update 2 will be free to Windows 8.1 Update 1 users, users coming from earlier versions of Windows 8.1 or 8 will have to pay a small fee to make the direct jump. Likewise Windows 8.1 Update 3 users will get the update free if they are on Windows 8.1 Update 2 and so on. This means you can get each update for free providing you manually make each update in each stage. Rumour also has it that Windows 9 users will get the OS for free if they are running Windows 8.1 Update 3. However, given Windows 7 users had to pay $40 to get to Windows 8 this does seem fairly unlikely unless Microsoft is pursuing a new fee structure.

      As far as I’m concerned it was game over for Microsoft when they closed the TechNet subscription service. The new CEO is going to fly the whole of Microsoft to the clouds where you will not be able to buy offline versions of their software and less likely to be able to buy Windows without buying a new device. They are going to copy the likes of Adobe and Google. The only people that will be able to buy offline versions of Microsoft products will be certified business partners. Microsoft for a while has not been interested in the individual consumer or small business market instead focusing heavily on the enterprise model. They will shut off the enthusiast market and force everyone down the Windows App store so that they are in total control of the user.
