I watch a ton of videos and analyze it. Joe Belfiore is responsible for windows 8 because he comes from background of Zune. First he did make a makeover of windows phone zune like and introduced tiles but then he did F up windows 8 merging those two just to boost phone department and save it. Nice idea but it doesnt work on pc OS. Now cloud guy mr Satya Nadella is making OS cloud based. Those two guys have singlehanded doomed MS forever. Why the H do we even need to download some OS. Lets make it available only thru cloud. Let us buy dead machines and just connect to cloud for virtual OS. When those two guys are gone maybe just maybe MS will live again.
In Europe, the price of Windows was usually around a full tank of petrol or so... so maybe you guys cease mentioning the price aspect of Windows and shift readers' attention to other topics...
MS is like enforcer. The last great OS was Win7 which is pc OS. Then some dushbag come with idea to unifie Pc OS with phone OS there for Metro, just to dave shitty ms phone department forcing everybody on the f planet to use METRO
On top of that there is Major BS XBOX unified with all OS integration. Seriously Windows is becoming more and more a very shitty OS. Last great Windows 7 i salute you. May you live forever. Im swithing to Mac after 8.1 death. No subscription from me.

Then you have to pay the subscription on a yearly basis.. It is better to keep a shadow copy so that once the free period is finished we can go back to windows 7/8.1 and wait for windows 11 free upgrade
Mats, 22 Jan 2015This should clear the confusion, it is FREE for upgrade within first year and no subscription ... moreSituation is not clear at all!
I will wait and see, but i'm not upgrading my pc to windows 10.
If the facts are true and OS will still be as before one time payment. Then i'm buying new laptop with windows 10 preinstalled. That free stuff i'm not falling for it. Nothing is free!!! But if Windows is on subscritpion well then it's goodbye MS forever
Before becoming CEO, Satya Nadella was the CLOUD guy at Microsoft. It is only obvious that after becoming CEO, he is going to focus on cloud services and software subscription business models.
Maybe Windows 10 does not need a monthly subscription fee, but that is beside the point. A lot of the extra services e.g. Onedrive, Xbox, Office 365 and Skype are tightly integrated into Windows 10. If you want the extras (including enterprise features), you'll have to cough out some money every month.
Essentially, Windows is no longer just an OS, but a 'freemium' platform for generating more revenue. Also, Microsoft has not yet abandoned hopes of gaining market share in the mobile market. Why? Because the app store generates revenue for Microsoft. Revenue that does not flow to Apple or Google.
That's why Microsoft keeps making Windows phones and Surface tablets even when almost no one is using them. That's why Microsoft keeps sneaking in touch features into the Windows desktop.
This should clear the confusion, it is FREE for upgrade within first year and no subscription fee comes with it just like previous versions.
People are talking about don't be affraid of changes or changes are good etc. But am i'm stupid to think that company wants to rip off people with more advnaced strategy as a good change. For the love of money. What's next. Subscription on everything if you don't pay then we will shut down your product. Now that im thinking back. All those setbacks at MS is deliberately made so people will buy (rip off)
XP to Vista
Win7 to Win8
for most effective rip off Windows 10.

OS on Rental.
When asked by reporters after the keynote address if Windows would become a subscription service, Nadella dodged the idea and said today's news doesn't indicate a fundamental shift in the business model. He didn't elaborate further.

Punisher, 22 Jan 2015Whaaaat? 50$/year subscription, are you kidding me?
As soon as i read about windows 10 and fa... moreWindows 10 is free! The first year means.... you will have to upgrade in the first year of launch. Thats it.
Why is it so complicated for people to understand??
MS recently made windows 8.1 free for devices 8"and smaller. Thats the new Microsoft - make if free and deliver value.

Whaaaat? 50$/year subscription, are you kidding me?
As soon as i read about windows 10 and false agenda to free upgrade since windows 7 as free but in subtext about 50$/year subscription as a service. MS is more like scamartist now. OS on rental are you f kidding me? Not that i will NOT upgrade but i will never never use MS again. If google is smart now they can make alot of money now on this fallback from MS. People are not stupid. I hope someone out there will take MS to Court about this False agenda. This is the largest scam ever pulled by MS. MS should be one time payed OS as always. Goodby MS if you are reading this. Hope you do!!!
"With Microsoft's Windows 10 event over it is time to take a look at what the Silicon Valley giant unveiled."
Microsoft is located in Redmond, WA - not Silicon Valley, CA.
I have windows 7, and there is absolutley no way I will update my windows 7 to windows 10. I will do it for my notebook which has windows 8, but not my windows 7.
