    Stand firm. I am of the opinion it may be Windows X
    Seriously, it can be called Windows X. I don't know how to feel about that...

    So it appears that this will be the LAST full client release of Windows. From hereon in, it will be an updatable, serviceable-product that gets altered monthly. Sounds more like the rapid release cycle of Firefox and Chrome.

    What I wonder is, how long will a single version/release stay supported? It appears that akin to Chrome, you will be pushed to the updated Windows 10 revisions when they are updated.
    Could solve one of M$ biggest problems (up grade from XP to ? because it will no longer be supported) that is if W10 will not expire.

    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 Eventually the hardware will evolve and the codebase of W10 will become outdated.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

    Sooner or later, it's likely that one of the updates will be larger than most, and then a great deal of the kernel might be updated at once. It will be just like the MacOS. OSX just gets incremental version releases (though they can incorporate a lot of improvements and changes). I'm sure with Windows 10, sometimes the updates will install over top. Other times, it may require a maintenance mode to install an update. The point is, patches will be cumulative. I'll also bet new features will be pushed to users much more rapidly.

    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.
