    No disrespect, but I (personally) have never seen a specific statement that they would never charge for premium services. I doubt they would be stupid enough to 'burn their bridges.'.

    It was made very early on when the initial insider program was launched. During the presentation to introduce 10 there were statements made about the cost and future costs
    for 10.

    Believe what you want, but everything is subject to change and when it comes to money, corporations change their stance when they feel like it.

    Speculating.. but heck. ITs' fun.
    I do not believe MS goes for decimals. They have made it really clear that Windows 10 will be the last Windows version, which in itself already indicates that they will drop the digits in some time quite near future.

    Going for 10.1 would then force them to go to 10.2, 10.3 and so on. I will never believe that.

    I am accepting all bets: Windows version name will remain Windows 10 until they totally drop the digits; from there on we will have just plain and simple Windows. Please let me know how much you geeks are willing to bet, I will accept all and every bet.

    Honestly, I agree with your points. The only change might be from Win10 to just Windows. But, speculating is so darn FUN!!

    I like speculation too. It makes returning to a forum like watching a TV show.
    Maybe they'll name new editions after breeds of dogs, just like how MacOSX revisions were named after large cats.

    Naming conventions can be unexpectedly dangerous. When the UK first start oil production in the 70's Shell (allegedly) called its first platform A UK. It dawned on them soon they were in trouble by the time they got to the sixth platform (letter F), so they (allegedly) renamed A UK as AUK (a bird), and since then all Shell platforms are named after birds. Probably an apocyrphal story, but funny anyway.

    Again something MS has made quite clear: Any installed and activated Windows 10 will be upgraded to new builds and remain activated the lifetime of the device. This does not only apply the so called Insiders who have opted in for build upgrades before their public release, but also all users who install and activate Windows 10 or buy a PC with pre-installed Windows 10 opting out from the Insider build upgrades.
    And MS has never changed their mind on something they said?

    Ms would never say one thing and then do just the opposite.

    From what MS did in Nov 2015 when they released their 1st big update they kept it Windows 10 but changed the Version to 1511 (YYMM) and the Build was 10586.00. I see a lot of post on the internet referring to Windows 1511.

    I think when Redstone comes out the Version will be the release Year & Month and a new Build number xxxxx.00
