    Even if they do decide to offer a Windows 365, it doesn't mean that will be the only option.

    At this point, I'm surprised actual windows (as in the things you look out of from a home) are still allowed to be called "windows" or an apple called an "apple".

    In case it wasn't clear, what I meant was subscription won't be the only option. You'll still be able to buy a license for a one time fee for Windows, like you can now. Like Office, Office 365. At least I hope that's how it pans out.

    I currently don't have any magazine subscriptions.

    Personally I would like to see Windows 10 in a subscription model, but I am sure will not gonna happen.

    Windows (1 pc) + Office (3 Pcs) + 1TB of Onedrive Storage at 9.99 dollars/euros per month. Too good to be true.

    Just out of curiosity .. why would you want to pay a subscription to use Windows 10??

    I agree on the red card.. it would make no sense to me to do that. I could see it for businesses that want faster updates and for others that want that same level of service but for "average" daily users that speed of updates may not be necessary..

    And what would the fee be?? That would be critical for many,, including me.
