  1. Wonder how what percentage of Wait PCs will be bricked by this.
    "free upgrade"? Also, wonder if one has to achieve full Windows 8.1 Update 1.
    to "upgrade" to Windows 9, or if otherwise you're SOOL?

    Interesting it's not a free "upgrade" to W7, which may mean W9 isn't as good an OS as W7, in which case it matters not how "free" W9 is, because that means Microsoft will be heading out of the OS business one way or the other in that case whether they want to be or not.
