AV software isn't the same as operating system. Stop using AV and its not that big a deal to put on a different AV. Swapping out an OS is much more problematic.

This subscription model is an alternative to the current licensing system for enterprise systems. That seems perhaps viable as an alternative for enterprise licensing, but I really cant see it being an option for home and OEM systems, not even if the subscription was micro. There's no advantage except for the vendor. I can't see them doing it; not if they have any sense left in their collective heads. Who's holding breath and waiting these days though?
