    Remember when Apple gave away OSX 10.1? That was Free for everyone. I went right down to CompUSA and got a copy, I keep it around to remind me of a time when things were done right.

    Since Microsoft is trying to "Save Face" with "Blue" or "8.1" for those who bought or upgraded to Windows 8 prior to the new Upgrade should get the Upgrade Free. It should be offered in Windows Update or offered on a specific Website saying something like "If you have a legitimate Copy of Windows 8 you are entitled to download this upgrade for free"

    If they do not, I am betting they will loose many customers and leave a real bad taste in those who have it now and need to spend money to upgrade what Microsoft should have done in the first place to make this a worthwhile OS!

    Or we could just wait until we actually know something before totally overreacting

    Then what's the point of having a "news" forum?

    The point is that I'm not sure rumour, fears and rampant speculation qualify as news, but whatever.

    Lol! I agree with you, but this doesn't seem to stop "24 hour news channels" and the like.

    Hi there

    Not sure about the logic here -- although I agree about not wanting to pay for Updates to Windows but haven't updates for Apple OS'es always been chargeable. -- I'm not an Apple user so I might be wrong but I seem to have read that Apple always charges for these things.

    As for News Forum -- of course we have speculation, gossip and rumours etc -- if you follow English Football just listen today about all the speculation about whether the long time manager of Manchester United Football club - Ferguson - (27 years he's been there) is about to quit or not. That's what a lot of News is -- speculation -- and why not.

    Cheers
