Microsoft promises twice-yearly Windows 10, O365 updates – with just 18 months' support

Astounded ...

I knew MS was good at shooting themselves in the foot, and getting (a lot) better at it ever since W10 ...

...but this isn't just "accidentally" shooting yourself in the foot anymore, this is more akin to pulling pins from hand grenades and intentionally dropping them at your feet!

I can't even think of a better way for MS to lose the desktop market advantage they had - this might end up driving adoption of thin clients (and face it, a console or phone/tablet is really a (moderately smart but still very dependent) thin client connecting to a server farm elsewhere) so very hard.
