Microsoft announced the price of Windows 8.1
Microsoft Corporation announced the prices for the new operating system Windows 8.1. As known earlier, the owners of Windows 8 will receive a free upgrade to Windows 8.1. Others, who want to install the new operating system, must buy it.

The price of the basic version of Windows 8.1 is $120 and the Windows 8.1 Pro is valued for $200.

Owners of the base version will be able to upgrade to the new version using Pro Package Pro Pack (includes Windows Media Center), costing additional $100. The package Windows Media Center for Windows 8.1 Pro costs $10. Windows 8.1 operating system can be purchased in digital format from the Microsoft website or on physical media.

Windows 8.1 will be distributed in its full version (already installed operating system is not required). This is the difference from Windows 8, which is provided as an update. This approach of propagation has several advantages. For example, the user can install the operating system on a brand new computer, to create a virtual machine or to install it on another partition on the hard disk.

It is noted that when installing Windows 8.1 on Windows 7 users will be able to store all needed files, but they will need to install all applications, including Microsoft Office. Windows 8.1 can’t be installed over computers running under the control of Windows XP or Windows Vista. Owners of these computers have to buy a copy of Windows 8.1 and install it freshly.

Windows 8.1 operating system will go on sale from October 18. In its development, many improvements were made. Among them are: upgraded customization, Bing Smart Search, more than 20 new applications and Microsoft services. In addition to Windows 8.1, "Start" button was returned and even option for implementing classic interface. Supports offline access to files from the cloud service SkyDrive, can work with ultra-high resolution, 3D-printers, Facebook and Flipboard.
