A chance to try the Windows 8.1 for free

Microsoft seems to be playing around with the Windows 8.1 which comes with Bing and this is a slightly different and low cost version of the original operating system which comes with Microsoft applications and services. This brings a little good news for the users who are still using Windows 7 because with this Bing OS, they can have the option of upgrading to the Windows 8.1 Bing version for free.

When it comes to making smart choices, Microsoft has always surprise us. The reason for this initiative was to increase the number of users for their Windows 8 and at the same time they will be able to monetize their applications and cloud services. But there is a slight catch to this, because we are still figuring out exactly how much committed Microsoft is towards this new Bing version of the OS. Nevertheless, their efforts are still evident to make the Windows 8.1 release more excited since they couldn’t do the same with the Windows 8.

We are also hearing that the Windows RT and Windows Phone will be combined into one operating system for all ARM-based devices. And as a closing note, Windows 8.1 update is going to be available from April 8th which is at the end of the Microsoft Developer BUILD conference and till then keep looking out for any more updates regarding the OS.

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.
