    Stating that Windows 10 will be the last version of Windows makes little sense to me unless Microsoft were to go out of business which is not likely.
    Lets say five years goes by and Windows 10 has been so changed that it has little resemblance to the original. Is it still Windows 10? I suppose the answer is yes if Microsoft desires to call it that but in reality it is so different that in the past it would have been deemed a new OS.
    I have to believe that the OS will continue to evolve so in fact we will have new versions of Windows. To continue to refer to these new editions as Windows 10 just seems odd.

    Windows 10 will be a "living" OS, with constant updates and upgrades (supposedly getting new features as often as monthly). Windows 10 will be whatever Windows 10 is at any given moment in time... this will make it very hard to write books and tutorials for it, I imagine

    Much like MacOS is still at Version 10 (X) after 10+ years, so will Windows be...

    Thank you Mystere. I don't understand why people don't seem to get that. I see it as when you buy Windows 10 on a DVD in 2015, it will be the Classic/Original build. But in 2020, five years of build updates will be integrated in to the present DVD. Plus those build updates will be available for download for a fee. Whereas, updates and service packs will be free.

    I would think its very likely to be something along those lines. The install software or ISO or whatever you want to call it, will be periodically updated to include updates and upgrades released since the last image. If they didn't as time went on you'd be wasting a long time downloading it all after a clean install. They will likely also do packages with a group of updates all rolled in. Like a service pack, they just won't call it that. They'll call it a rollup.

    Windows 7

    Given this permanent update strategy, frequent images will become more important. Then you are always at the latest level. A reinstallation in 2020 with an iso of 2015 will be a real pain. I have been thru a situation like that recently with a reinstallation of Vista with an installation disc of 2007 - no fun.

    Microsoft Doors will be next, Microsoft Knob after, then finally Microsoft Key will be the last.
