However, no matter what the company does, there still are plenty of users who are on older Windows versions, including Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7. ZDNet has learned that Microsoft may be working on a huge Windows 9 surprise to convince reluctant users to finally move to the latest Windows operating system available. The company is reportedly considering offering some sort of Windows 9 upgrade deal to XP, Vista and Windows 7 users, with a completely free upgrade option also on the table.

This is interesting news. I can understand dumping Windows XP and Windows Vista, but I admit I’m one of those Windows 7 holdouts myself. While Windows 8.1 does seem to be a slight improvement over Windows 8, I still haven’t been entirely convinced that it’s time to upgrade yet. Perhaps, if some of these rumors mentioned in the article come to fruition, then I might be tempted.
