Has anyone considered the reason we are all getting free upgrades to Windows OS 10 in the first year is the full functionality that everyone wants (desktop, Laptop, Tablet and mini convertible gadgets yet to be shown in public) cannot be ready in time. I suspect they will release what they consider to be the CORE SYSTEM for all devices and then over the next year during the free upgrade time roll out features such as AERO and other refinements that have been asked for now begged for and even demanded. I have thoughts of feature packs such as an Aero and Theme changing and Customization pack, Language Packs, Gaming Pack, Office Power User Pack, Laptop Pack, Tablet Pack. All these add ons fool wit the power settings and such like to tweak your machine to do what you wish. These could be sold say for $25 per household. Buy the packs to add on to the core OS. This is what I think Windows as a service entails. CoreOS is free, security updates free but these add on packs are charged for per household. It does not mean you cannot game without the game pack but it would be possible to only enable all the functions on Direct X when you purchase the add on. Remember I have been saying this for over a year and you read it first on 10 Forums.
I do not believe everyone wants a Tablet, laptop, smartphone gadgets like these watches. I do not believe that you can have a Core operating system that will run properly across all of these devices. I own one Desktop, an ordinary cell phone that I can talk on. My PC is four + years old and runs fine on Windows 7. I can play COD AW without issues . Microsoft is not a non profit organization, they are in this for the money and they will get it one way or the other. I will have to read the details about this upgrade before I do it. If it is to be free for the first year, I think that one would be wise to wait at least 11 months. But this is only my opinion.
Yes and the ink cost more than the printer.
