No Windows 8.1 Update 3 Coming: Microsoft Seeking To Bury Windows 8
Ryan Martin / 5 years ago
Not that long ago we heard that Windows 9 might be delayed to squeeze in Windows 8.1 update 3. Windows 8.1 Update 3 was to be the third and last major update for Windows 8.1 before Microsoft moves on to Windows 9. However, new reports from famous Windows leaker WZOR suggest Windows 8.1 update 3 has been scrapped entirely. Microsoft is going to push ahead with the second update which is coming in the very near future, possibly as early as next week, and then move straight onto Windows 9. The reason? Well Microsoft thinks Windows 8.X is a lost cause, a bit like a Vista 2.0. Instead of investing time and resources into Windows 8.1 update 3, that could be better spent improving Windows 9. This is a move that might anger Windows 8.X users – they’ve paid for the OS and now Microsoft wants to short change them because it hasn’t “sold enough”.
