    Hello All,

    As a Tech Director for a small school who is an Office 365 shop, I'm looking to stay away from Chromebooks for our students, so we can experience full Office and not Office Online. I'm not going to make any moves until Windows 10 comes around, due to the interface complications Windows 8(.1) will have on our teachers who got mad when I went to 7 from XP last year.

    Does anyone know if Microsoft is planning on keeping this Windows 8.1 with Bing trend with Windows 10? Will we see more "Bing Books" I haven't really seen many with Windows 8.1 with Bing other than the HP Stream, which has it's pros/cons.

    Thanks!

    That is for upgrades, which doesn't apply here.

    I don't know if they're keeping it with the same "for Bing" moniker, but we can be sure there are still going to be more low-cost devices. (since 8.1 with Bing is otherwise identical to normal 8.1)
