    I notice you basically completely ignored virtually everything I said and focused on one piece, with a long article which doesn't say what you think it does (or at least claim it does).

    Here's the enlightening quote from that article:

    It's not really clear just how involved Gates will be in shaping products. And given his track record of recent years it may not be the best role. Ted Schadler, an analyst with Forrester Research, thinks what Gates is really doing is helping to smooth the transition for the new CEO.
    Gates isn't doing much of anything... He's an advisor.. he's not calling any shots. He's not in control. He's the old fart in the corner that gives his input.

    So quit trolling, and go somewhere else.

    thank you all for the replies.
    Yes I have seen many claims that Microsoft will give us free updates and sure hope that they continue that with the new OS. I am like a lot here I guess. I do like the new versions of Windows that have come out since the first version of windows (except Vista). Windows 7 was my favorite but it didn't take me long to get used to Windows 8.

    cheers

    Windows 10 Pro,

    I think that when I buy a new computer, or more-than-likely build one, I will have to purchase a copy of Windows 10. I am fine with that. It is free for the computers that I own now, but I can't expect it to be free for every device that I buy in the future. I live in America, I am a capitalist. I am fine with this scheme.

    If you had bothered to look at the financials, you would see that as things stand today, the consumer OS sales do not really make that much money. The vast majority of MS's money comes from (and these licensing costs are not changing):

    What Bill Gates' New Role Could Mean For Microsoft

    Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates is stepping down as chairman of its board and into a new role, which the company is calling "technology adviser." The change comes as a new CEO Satya Nadella takes the helm. Gates says he will actually be spending a little more time at Microsoft. Microsoft watchers say if he manages his new role well, it will be good for the company.



    Gates is certainly the visionary who turned Microsoft into a software juggernaut. Back in 1990, Gates told NPR that computers weren't quite ready for the home at least not yet.
    "A lot of people wouldn't have the time to learn how to use it," he said. But he also saw that in the near future computers would become easy to use and people would find them "as the medium they use to get information and to learn."
    Gates was right on the money, and Microsoft's software navigated most of our PCs for over a decade. But Gates had a PC-centric vision of the future. He was slow to see the Internet coming. He couldn't imagine that people would bypass the computer for services that live online or in the cloud like Google Docs or Netflix. Microsoft's been playing catch-up.
    Microsoft Finds Itself at a Crossroads


    Gates missed that boat. But in stepping down as chairman, he announced that he would be spending more time at the company as its technical adviser at Nadella's request.
    In a video released by Microsoft, Gates said, "I'm thrilled that Satya has asked me to step up, substantially increasing the time that I spend at the company. I'll have over a third of my time available to meet with product groups and it'll be fun to define this next round of products."
    It's not really clear just how involved Gates will be in shaping products. And given his track record of recent years it may not be the best role. Ted Schadler, an analyst with Forrester Research, thinks what Gates is really doing is helping to smooth the transition for the new CEO.
    "So you start to think of Bill Gates as a coach, as a mentor, as somebody who is willing to step out of the limelight, but be present in helping the new CEO get his feet under him and get things done," Schadler says.
    Schadler thinks the board picked Nadella to lead the company because he has been a leader at Microsoft in developing its cloud services, which is where the company needs to grow. Schadler says there is a risk in having Gates involved day to day: He could steal the limelight from Nadella.
    "It would not create urgency around changing," Schadler says. "So if you're an employee of Microsoft, you need to change. And if Bill Gates was still seen as calling the shots then you might think, 'Well, I don't have to change really; we can just kind of keep going the way we're going.' "

    The point you made was that Bill Gates was making billions on Win 10. As technical adviser, although I'm sure paid well, he's not making billions with Win 10.

    I didn't think of that. As long as the forums don't have more Trolls than Mordor has Orcs.

    There is and always will be that someone out there who thinks that just because he can read something he is smarter then anyone else on any topic, this FD611V is just another one of those individuals. He is looking only to cause problems among the local population, and see if he can gain a few followers. . .sure hope he fines what he is looking for. . .
