    Microsoft Official Confirms “Windows 10 Is the Last Version of Windows


    With Windows 10, Microsoft’s going to change pretty much everything about its Windows model, so in addition to offering the operating free of charge to previous Windows users and switching to a continuous update process rather than a monthly cycle, the company is also planning to change its approach to new releases.

    Jerry Nixon, a Microsoft Developer Evangelist, said at the Ignite conference in Chicago that Windows 10 “is the last version of Windows, so we’re always working on Windows 10.”
    While his statement seems to be hiding lots of untold details about Windows 10, it’s really easy to understand the message, given the fact that plenty of information on Microsoft’s new approach has already been leaked to the web.

    Windows 8.1.1 64-bit

    Well, that makes me even less enthusiastic than ever about adopting Win 10 as my main everyday OS. Looking very much at this stage as if Win 8.1 is destined to become my 'Windows XP'...

    Well Wenda, you won't be all alone....... Because I and a good share of the world's PC users, will be right there with you.

    I had planned on just using XP-Pro-SP3 till forever, but then, I had to build a new PC with a really great motherboard that I found won't support XP. Every attempt to install XP to it results in a BSOD. So I've adopted Windows 8.1, Pro as my Operating System of the day. With the Classic Shell and a few tweaks, it's every bit as user friendly as XP.

    The early versions of Windows 10, weren't too bad, but they just keep taking away things that I've grown accustomed to.
    I'll continue to test Windows 10 till it's formal release, then its history.

    If MS goes the subscription route, I will go back to using Linux. I just wish that they will release a new build soon.

    Microsoft wants to do, what Apple does with OSX.

    Btw, I dont think there will be a subscription model.

    Updates and patches fore the core system will remain free.

    The question is, "In the future when the want to add other capabilities, will the be Add Features to Windows 10?", which wouldn't be so bad for people who don't want or need a new product an the resulting bulk.

    An example is Microsoft puts DVR capability in XBOX then decides "Hey wouldn't it be cool to offer this to the Windows 10 users!". I have a SAGEM DVR(4 "Heads") and don't need one on my PC. It would also probably cost something because of CODEC licensing too.
