Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 users will get free Windows 11 upgrade!
XDA Developers spotted some product configuration keys in a leaked Windows 11 build, which have titles for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1. These keys could be a sign of Microsoft bringing users of older Windows operating systems to Windows 11 as a free upgrade.
However, interestingly, Windows 8 configuration is not part of these keys. This suggests that Windows 8 users may need to upgrade to Windows 8.1 before moving to Windows 11.
According to data provided by analytics platform Statcounter, Windows 7 operating system is the second largest Windows operating system worldwide after Windows 10 with 15.52 percent market share as of May. It is followed by Windows 8.1, which has 3.44 percent share. In contrast, Windows 8 has just 1.27 percent share.
Windows 11 operating system is scheduled to launch on June 24, but even before its release, the new operating system has been seen through its leaked build. It will include a new Start Menu and the company has also made many changes in the interface, due to which it has become quite different from Windows 10. It is clear that Windows 10 users will get the new version as a free upgrade, although it is not clear whether it will be immediately available for the older generation operating system.
