Microsoft plans to announce a free version of Windows 8.1 in a bid to persuade customers to upgrade to the latest version, if reports are to be believed.
The new version, called ‘Windows 8.1 with Bing’, could be given away at a developers’ conference in April, a version that would have key Microsoft apps and services.
Microsoft is currently experimenting with a free version of Windows 8.1 that could boost the number of people using the operating system.
The firm has already made modifications to Windows 8 in a bid to make it more appealing to consumers.
The company considers the new system as a first step that would make it easier for touchscreen users, giving a similar experience across Microsoft’s phones, tablets and PCs.
The firm would bring back the start button which can let you boot straight to the desktop.
