Sources close to Microsoft have reported this week that the company is currently developing and experimenting with a new free version of its Windows 8.1 operating system.
It’s thought that Microsoft is building its new free Windows 8.1 operating system to be tied to its Bing search engine as well as other key Microsoft applications and services.
In the past ,versions of the experimental Windows 8.1 operating system incorporating Bing have been leaked revealing hints of its development. Which is thought to be aiming to bring a low-cost version of Windows to consumers, offering a low-cost upgrade for Windows 7 users, as well as being bundled with PC systems as part of a recent licence cuts for devices under $250.
At the current time Microsoft has not confirmed or denied the development of the low-cost Windows 8.1 operating system and it’s also thought to be considering low cost or free versions of its Windows phone operating system to monetise its Bing search engine platform even further.
More details of a low-cost Windows 8.1 operating system as well as the merging of Windows RT and Windows Phone are expected to be made available by Microsoft during their Build conference later this year.
