Microsoft WINDOWS 10: Seven ATE Nine. Or Eight did really

Why?

The question that Microsoft have failed to answer pretty much ever since Windows XP is: Why should an enterprise upgrade?

So Windows XP died and enterprises reluctantly rolled out Windows 7 which is, I believe, a worthy successor but still cost enterprises tens or hundreds of thousands of pounds. So - why would they want to do that again for Windows 10 were it not for planned obsolescence?

And is Redmond's strategy really just to keep pumping out that same kernel with a few tweaks to the UI?
