So this Summer, we will be getting the Windows Blue Public Preview and there have been two questions we keep getting asked.

“How do I download Windows Blue or Windows 8.1”

“How do I install Windows Blue or Windows 8.1”

Basically, people want to know how to download and install Windows Blue.

Well today (May 7th, 2013), that seems to have been partly answered by Microsoft’s Windows Chief.

In a quote to Wired Magazine, she said

“The update will be “available to everyone that has Windows 8 in the Windows 8 store,”.

I am anticipating that Windows Blue Public Preview and the final version of Windows 8.1 (as it is rumored  will be absolutely free to the end user running Windows 8.

Anything other than free would be madness so assume it will be free.

Stay tuned to this page to find out more about downloading and installing Windows Blue. As soon as we know more, it will be posted right here…
