    Supposedly, Windows 9 will be a free upgrade for all existing owners of Windows 8. We are reporting this as a rumor, even though the source of the intel claims it has been confirmed, because Microsoft themselves have yet to confirm it publicly. Here's a quote with the details,

    We will keep an eye out for any solid corroboration of this. Sound off if you are using Windows 8 and will be one of the lucky folks to get Windows 9 for free.

    Suuuweet :D I happen to be a windows 8.1 user so I can't wait to get my free upgrade.
    When is Windows 9 released again? Anyone knows?

    How about features? :D

    "Supposedly Confirmed" is a strange phrase.

    Rumor ... Supposedly Confirmed.

    I think they call that Hot Gossip... but why not. The real money is in those Win7 upgrades and replacements.

    I remember the gossip about Windows 95. Turns out, it was named for the number of floppy discs it came on.

    I don't understand. Why no live feed? Why not want to make a big splash?

    Edit.

    By the way, it's called windows 10.
