Windows 7 to Windows 9 Upgrade to Cost $30 Report

Quote:
Windows 9 will play multiple roles when it hits the market in early 2015, and in addition to providing users with a much more familiar working environment and new features, the new OS will also help Microsoft itself get over the Windows 8 failure.

Recently, it has emerged that Windows 9 might be available free of charge for Windows 8.1 users, and now it appears that the company is also preparing a special offer for those running Windows 7.

According to Russian leaker WZor, who has already provided us with several accurate details on Windows 9, Microsoft is planning to make the upgrade from Windows 7 to this new operating system very affordable.

Although not yet confirmed, a $30 (24) upgrade is very likely to be offered to those on Windows 7 who want to switch to Windows 9, with the whole process very likely to be conducted all automatically, without the need for a clean install.

Nice price and all, maybe somewhat too soon to make conclusions, but what MS really needs to provide is a real reason to switch from 7 to 9.

Me too and I'll leave my 7 alone on my dual boot machines and side grade to 9 with the 8.1 installations.

I doubt I will do any of the above.

The problem I see is that this (most likely) will only be for standard users. It will probably be the Windows 9 with Bing version only. If you have 8.1 Pro, it stands to reason they will charge you another $100.00 for the upgrade and then another $10.00 charge if want Media Center. I just won't do it.

There will be nothing Windows 9 can offer over 8.1 other than eye candy (a new menu, so what). The App Store will not be improved, not much of anything else. It just wouldn't be worth it, at least not for me. IMHO.

Wasn't 8.0 $40?

Vaguely remember it was.

Assuming this is better than 8.0 ( has to be) then maybe that first $40 wasn't completely wasted.

I believe a upgrade of win-8 started out as 19.99

Who needs Media Center haven't touched in years and that was just to turn off it's auto updating of a worthless t.v. guide

Plenty of free players available if and when compatible :/
I doubt wmp will be for sale who would buy it

Well we use Media Center daily, we replaced all of our Comcast Set Top Boxes with Silicondusts HD Prime and all of our TVs (5), which saves us $40 a month charge for the units. The cable card(s) cost us $1.50 per month, in comparison. Hmm, $40 x 12 = $480.00 dollars a year, not a bad investment. Also, all of our tablets can run it, I forgot about those. Oh, and we can record shows weeks in advance.

An added benefit is, we actually have better pictures, the comcast boxes, were always a dismal quality.

and there are approximately 60+ million users of Media Center, so just because you don't use, please don't undermine those of us who do.
