    How about this?

    Office 2015: Permanent license, no free upgrade, limited cloud features
    Office 365: free upgrades for eternity, cloud features, 1TB OneDrive Storage
    Windows 10: the core package
    Windows 365: Free upgrades for eternity plus cloud services (like maybe Skype and Xbox music subscriptions). Probably downgrades to the current OS Core package if not renewed.
    Xbox Live Gold could be rebranded Xbox 365...

    And we can have Microsoft 365; which is Windows, Office, and Xbox subscriptions rolled into one and discounted (kind of like the Work&Play bundle)

    How much would you suggest MS sell Windows 365 if their going to give free upgrades for life?

    Windows 365 is a subscription. Hopefully with rates similar to office 365. The important thing is that if you stop paying your subscription it will drop to the core package (like how XP and 7 are) but ideally the current edition so you're not forced to reinstall and downgrade. Not sure how it would stop people from buying a monthly subscription then terminating it once their computer is upgraded...
