Is Microsoft Considering a Free Version of Windows 8.1?

According to rumors, Microsoft is thinking of giving away its new OS for free - Windows 8.1. ZDNet and Verge are saying that Microsoft is going to trial something called Windows 8.1 with Bing.
The version of the OS will be bundled with "key Microsoft apps and services"—and be free to upgrade, or at least very, very low cost. A Bing-centric version of Windows 8.1 may be offered to PC makers. This will lower the license price point, making cheaper devices more affordable too.
Does this mean Microsoft is looking to flood the market with Bing? Still, this is just a rumor, at least for now. And it wouldn't be a bad thing too, to give Windows 8.1 away. I'd gladly use Bing. Why not. [ZDNet and Verge]
