Microsoft is now pretty much busy in developing updated version of its much popular Windows 8 operating system. Windows 8 operating system has already got too many customers and which shows how crazy people are going for this version of Windows operating system.
Windows 8 is good in performance and also looks impressive. This is why people are accepting it. Another reason why Windows 8 is so popular now is that at the back of the Windows 8 there is still the Windows 7. So, users don’t need to learn a complete new operating system which they would have not loved at all.
Now the next version of the Windows 8 will be having slight updates in the previous OS. These slight updates will be in the security, performance and battery life sectors. Other sectors will be covered too like design or look of the OS.
Microsoft will not change the look of the OS in this update but will provide it with a new theme that will look blue. This is why the next updated version is being called as Windows 8 Blue.
All the security holes, bugs and performance issues will be taken over in this upcoming Windows 8 updated version. Devices which reside over battery will also experience slight increase in the battery life.
Next version of the Windows 8 will be officially called as Windows 8.1 and it will be available for update at no cost. That means users can update to Windows 8.1 from Windows 8 for free and that too in few easy steps.
Update to Windows 8.1 from Windows 8 for Free
Microsoft earlier provided upgrade tool using which users were comfortably upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 8 and the same concept will go with the next updated version too.
Once Microsoft announces the availability of the Windows 8.1 then it will be available for free download at the official Microsoft’s Windows 8 dedicated page.
Users need to download and install that upgrade tool on their PC or laptop running previously on Windows 8 operating system.
