    BRINK: I just wanted to say Thanks! for posting this. Good scoop.

    But also I should take this opportunity to apologize: I thought the thread title was referring to some game I had never heard of but that my four age 15-28 yr. old sons may know of - never bothered to read until now. I asked them and they had never heard of "Threshold 2"!

    NOW I KNOW SOMETHING THEY DON'T! Bwahahahahahaaaa!

    Indeed! But I think I'm gaining on the 15 year old - he asked me: "Hey, Papa, what is that forum called?" PLUS it looks like the 23 year old got a headache trying to choose a laptop and has just ordered the same laptop I have so he can benefit from my "experience" - LOL.

    Remember, your worst day at work will still be better than your best day with your teenager.

    I can't see people buying a new computer every time they want a Windows update. I know I won't. IMO I see Microsoft keeping updates (security and bug fixes) free and in the future charging for upgrades (new features) for Windows.
    Of course not. It may take a while before a more powerful system is needed, sooner for gamers and other power users. I should have said eventually require a better system. It certainly won't happen every year or even 5 years probably. They will miss a whole cycle this time though by giving it away for free. I just think they want as many people on it as soon as possible so they can cut support for older versions sooner and save money that way.

    If they hold true to what they said which was that all updates and even upgrades (since 10 is the last version of Windows) would be free for the life of the device, then they won't charge this first wave of upgraders anything, ever, as long as they are still using that machine. With the change to how activations are handled, they will know if changes are made that warrant a new purchase.

    I think subscription will be an option at some point. It just won't be the only option. Like Office is now, you can buy it outright or pay by subscription. Your choice.
    That may happen with future purchases. I was talking about this first wave of upgraders. We will never have to pay a subscription as long as we still use the same machines.

    Yes, the free upgrade is free for the life of the device.
