Microsoft alludes to free Windows 8.1 update

The latest operating system from Microsoft – Windows 8 – is set to get an update this summer at no cost to its users. Tami Reller, chief marketing officer and chief financial officer at Microsoft, confirmed the upcoming release of Windows 8.1 – previously codenamed Windows Blue – at a conference hosted by JP Morgan in Boston in May, promising it would be made available for free through the Windows Store.

The update was in response to customer feedback since Windows 8 launched and the ideas would be incorporated when it rolls out later in the year.
