According to the publication ZDNet, Microsoft are currently developing and experimenting with a new and free version of the Windows 8.1 operating system, quoting sources that they say are close to Microsoft.

According to the sources, Microsoft will be building the system that is said to be called “Windows 8.1 with Bing,” bundling key Microsoft apps and services.

According to rumours early versions of the software have leaked online, and when finished it will be available as a low-cost upgrade for users still running on Windows 7, as well as being bundled with PC systems that are low-cost, coming after a recent licence cut for devices under $350.

Microsoft have yet to confirm or deny the development of the free Windows 8.1 operating system, but if we do hear anything we will let you know.
