@ all the malware removal guy's. Get ready to be busy If this happens.

 

 

 

Windows 8.1 Update 1 could be specifically designed to do this, with some people close to the matter explaining that the upcoming release might only require 1 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage space on either tablets or PCs.

 Yes I wanna see that, If Microsoft says 1 gig You will need 2... LOL

 

 

Windows 8.1 Update 1 is slated to make its public debut in April as part of the Patch Tuesday cycle

Better be an optional Update, I paid for my Win7 and would be upset If I was forced to upgrade by a sneaky( automatic) Update.

 

 

Of course, such a product could also help Microsoft compete against the likes of Linux

 

I can see it now Microsoft Windows open source where you can do anything you want like in Linux.

 

Then again it might improve security.

Yes Virginia there is a Santa Claus, And the Easter Bunny is real..........

 

 

April HUH? Microsoft setting us up for a April Fools Day joke?

 

I can see it now Microsoft realeases new free secure operating system that runs on 1 gig of ram on older systems....... APRIL FOOLS.

You can bet with the sagging PC market both MS and those who it supplies are in bed with this, force it upon the unsuspecting in a bid to boost overall sales of both.  It is just big biz taking a deep breath!


Honesty & Integrity Above All!
