Windows 9 will be free to Windows 8 owners – report

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.
