windows-9ndowsIt looks like Windows 9 will be available free to owners of Windows 8, this is if we are to go with the report published by Indonesian news site Detik.com.

The news site published a statement by Microsoft Indonesia’s Andreas Diantoro seemingly confirming the news.

According to a Google translation of the article, Diantoro said Windows 8 will “update automatically” to the new edition of the operating system when it releases.

According to the article Diantoro makes this claim regarding codename ‘Threshold’, which is believed to be Windows 9. Whether the upgrade will apply to owners of Windows 7 or Vista is not specified.

This is coming ahead of an expected preview edition of Windows 9, which will be reportedly released in September or October.

Microsoft has a September 30 event in San Francisco (that’s tomorrow). Chief among the expected changes is the glorious return of the Windows start button.
