M$ wants to also start charging for windows 10

Post by DAMIEN1307 » Sun Sep 16, 2018 7:00 am

interesting article below that pretty much speaks for itself..."windows as a service" looks like its going to be exactly that, more than likely with businesses first being charged a monthly subscription fee for service...how long before the home user?...thats probably anyones guess but i think most of us saw this coming a long time ago as part of their "new" business model of "WAAS"...DAMIEN

if you wish yo buy their argument, that win-10 is the "Last Version of Windows",
and then you see that they are releasing an update, every six months,
then you will also see that they will need to get a New Business Model.

I'm pretty happy about this and I think is probably good all round. Commercial enterprises that want constant and instant attention for problems will get it. Home users or small businesses will have to stick with older versions of windows or swap to Linux. Really, it opens up the market. Windows might improve too, as their income model doesn't depend on inventing more useless things you can do, but on actual useability. I'm sure plenty of people will also find a way to hack or avoid paying for the service too.
