Windows "Blue" Is Now Windows 8.1 And It's Free

Windows "Blue" is now simply Windows 8.1 and it will be a free upgrade to all Windows 8 owners. The company also plans a preview of Windows 8.1 at the end of June.

The update to the struggling Windows 8 operating system, known by the code name "Blue," will be called Windows 8.1, a naming convention that Microsoft has used for its software updates for years. To date, the Windows division has updated the various versions of the Windows 8 operating system 739 times, Reller said. Windows 8.1, however, will offer significantly more changes than those frequent fixes.
