Microsoft wants more people to come aboard, so they are giving away Windows 8.1 as a “free version” as an experiment, pending how long a time period the offer goes for.
The experiment is actually “Windows 8.1 with Bing”, a low-cost upgrade, bundling useful Microsoft services and apps.
A conference in April, Microsoft’s Build developer suite, will bring further details on the update as well as the plans of merging Windows Phone and Windows RT.
