It can't possibly be the last OS they release. Eventually the hardware will evolve and the codebase of W10 will become outdated. I can't predict what will happen, but OS is a relatively short-lived beast.
There is no way that I will ever use a cloud based OS. Linux is free
My concern is, what if I liked a feature from a previous Windows 10 revision? And what if it disappears on the next revision? I can't go back to the version of Windows I liked because I won't receive updates. Moreover, it will just be re-updated again.
We were discussing in a thread a week or so ago, about being tied to Microsoft at the hip, and it does seem this version of Windows is set out to accomplish just that, by migrating us to a service subscription at some point in the future.
I'm keeping an open mind and I'm going to try the Tech Preview starting tomorrow.
Windows 9 must have been a real loser.
Just how cloud based will it be? I have satellite ISP and a real deal breaker if too much cloud based is forced. The data usage is a total no go.
