Microsoft rethinks the Windows application platform one more time


Re: Be afraid!

Windows 10 will not go "subscription".

You might like to cite some evidence for that; repeated assertion does not count.

I can't seen any alternative but for WIndows to become subscription-only; by declaring that Windows 10 will be the last version of Windows ever, they have killed off all possible upgrade revenue; they can only ever sell Windows with new PCs.That's a *big* drop in revenue, with no commensurate drop in development cost.

Sure, they'll make some money from advertising and from selling your data to third parties - but will that recover the upgrade losses? That would be a lot of advertising...
