Microsoft is making its Xbox Music streaming service available for free on the Web — even to those who don’t use Windows 8.
Microsoft’s Surface tablet running a full version of Windows 8 Pro will start selling in January for $899 and up, the company announced Thursday.
Microsoft believes that the latest version of Windows is off to a great start, but it’s going to take more to prove that the revamped software will win over people.
With Friday’s release of the touch-centric Windows 8 software, Microsoft continues more than three decades of making operating systems for personal computers.
The release of Microsoft’s Windows 8 is a week away, and consumers are in for a shock. Windows is getting a completely different look.
Buyers of tablets that run Microsoft’s newest operating system, Windows 8, are in for a pleasant musical surprise: they’ll be able to handpick from a selection of millions of songs and stream them for free as long as they put up with an audio ad every 15 minutes.
Microsoft sent out a “save the date” to members of the press on Monday for an event planned for October 25 in New York City. “You’re invited to celebrate Windows 8,” in the invite reads.
Windows 8 will hit store shelves this October, according to a new report. Microsoft is said to be finishing work on the new operating system this summer.
