    Hi there
    With Adobe Photoshop and Office already going subscription will W9 be a subscription / Cloud based service or not. I really don't like the idea of subscription based models but it seems that the market is moving inevitably towards that type of business model.

    Android seems to survive very well as a Cloud based OS without people having to install it on their phones / tablets - but then depending on your supplier you are highly dependant on their bloat / ad / trial / crap ware so I'm not in favour of OS'es you can't locally install either - local installs mean you can remove all the rubbish and get your system running how you want it to.

    Get your Old Windows OS'es ready for running under VM software and get your Linux handbooks out again.

    The "Whisper" feature at Redmond says there's a lot of discussion over the next model - hopefully the non subscription faction will win out.

    Cheers

    That is exactly what I will do. A cloud based OS is a not going happen in my case.

    This is the first time hearing of this, and after thinking about it just don't see it happening. Not sure why some people (very minute amount) are saying Chrome is doing good (haven't found put any one I know who have bought a chrome book that likes them. In fact they are wishing they hadn't because they cannot put XP or Win 7 on them, albeit as we all know it takes all kinds. . .:arghh:

    That's not something I'd buy into.

    MS may well do this, since they seem to be on self destruct sequence with their heads fully inserted.

    Please this MS and self destruct is getting old. There is nothing showing this as happening, nor the possibility of this happening in the near or far future.

    Don't ever see MS creating a cloud OS. They will continue to be native. However, we can expect to see more of service applications in their upcoming releases. Not to worry, though, for one will be able to use a local account never to see the light of those services if that's what one chooses.

    A majority of MS profit isn't from advertising as the likes of Google. Don't see MS as being a "pushy" corp like Google, nor do I see Apple as such either. However, there is a lot of profit in advertising, related data collection, and sales services.

    If ever the day comes where I don't have a choice is the day I look elsewhere.

    I fully agree and I hope they will find a good path for users. Win ME, 2000, Vista, Win 8.......even the first iteration of the beloved XP was full of faults. There is no way to tell the future, but history is a good teacher, Beta Max, 8-track, Edsel, et.al. weren't listening to real people, just engineers and designers.

    Gotta agree with you about the chromebooks. I only know one "owner" and he hates it and its sitting on a shelf gathering dust. "A waste of money". I was kicked off a site permanently and my account deleted for saying this very thing.
