Microsoft Reduces Windows Installation Price to $15 for Manufacturers

Microsoft wants to gain an edge over its competitors. This is why it has decided to cut its Windows price considerably so that it will equal the rates of rival company products. 

The rates have been slashed by a whopping 70% till now. Microsoft wants to get tough on the competition and so it is reducing its Windows price. Windows 8.1 will be cheapened price-wise beyond the imaginary limits of the customers. 

This means that its rival Google and the chrome books that get sold like hotcakes will suffer somewhat of a setback. A fee of $15 will be charged instead of $50 to users of Windows 8.1. The devices on which the Windows version will be installed go for as much as $250 though.

The sources that leaked this information have preferred to remain anonymous. Apple and Google had been giving Microsoft a hard time since eons. So Microsoft decided to get even. 

Microsoft had until recently reached the nadir in its kismet. It had been facing bleak times. And now that it has made a few crucial changes in the pricing system, things are looking up once more. 

The $80 billion worldwide market in tablets will be having a large chunk taken out of it by Microsoft now. Besides this, Microsoft is looking further into novel forms of technology. It wants to innovate and get creative. 

However, Bill Gates’ brainchild still has a long way to go. While the owner is a genius of the highest order, his organization is still struggling among the giant companies of the world. 

Steve Ballmer is about to leave for good and the Nokia acquisition is yet to fully integrate its functions with the parent company. 

Firms such as Apple or Google have it made with their respective iPads and moon-shot experiments. But Microsoft still needs to do more to gain global recognition.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
