And RedHat has 10 years with RHEL. Yes you pay for that but CentOS is built from the same sources and is free.

MS is really trying to force its hand and get everyone locked into this perpetual upgrade cycle.

All it needs is a few major business orgs to say No and MS will have to come up with another plan.

MS clearly has no idea at all of the costs involved in just keeping still. With more and more support being offshored to India, it won't end well.

This

makes interesting reading.

It won't end well for some businesses and their employees.
