Saw the article this morning. Clickbait (its for business only).

All of my words.... do you know how many business's use Windows PCs? And there is no real way of using Win10 Home edition in a business either since you would lose out on all the domain features, would just have to cough up I guess.

I definitely would not call Microsoft making this rather brave move clickbait, sure it doesn't effect home users now, but still that is a huge amount of $ which Microsoft is going to bank from this.



Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8

If I ran a business, I would switch to Linux fast as fuuuuuck lol.



enterprise was never advertised or offered as free. OS for business has never been handled in the same way as for home. In fact they made this quite clear over a year ago and frankly they do this because the per user is preferable for businesses.

It pertains to Azure. Azure IS xboxlive.

While it's currently only for business, this could easily develop into windows users paying for live.

Made a bet with LipeJJ and HylianYoshi that the XB1 will reach 30 million before Wii U reaches 15 million. Loser has to get avatar picked by winner for 6 months (or if I lose, either 6 months avatar control for both Lipe and Hylian, or my patrick avatar comes back forever).

"Could Microsoft eventually introduce Windows 10 monthly subscriptions for consumers?" Sure they could but it certainly wouldn't happen to the people that already upgraded... Microsoft isn't stupid... That is the fastest way to lose customers and get tons of lawsuits. They want people to come to Windows 10 due to Windows Store and ad stuff, not cause of a subscription service...

What MS will probably do is have a subscription based model for the users who don't upgrade. And enterprise models never reflect consumer pricing so just cause its $7 per month for enterprise will not mean its $7 per month for consumers.

They will essentially have two options imo, subscription or buy out right. Office has this since you can either get Office 365 which is a subscription based or Office Pro Plus which is buy once and you have it for life. They have this for Skype for Business as well... You can either pay monthly per user or buy their Server Edition.

Gamers are apartially to blame for letting this happen by accepting subscriptions from MS and Sony, seriously people did you think this would ever end, we let this happen, we made excuses for it and paid for it, what a bunch of dumb a$$es we are



If you don't like Windows 10 Microsoft already has an option which is called Windows 7.



Nintendo is selling their IPs to Microsoft and this is true because:

I just wish gaming on Linux would bloody pick up already. It's the only thing keeping me on Windows. I'd switch to Linux Mint tomorrow if I could take my games with me.

Also, I bet Linux for businesses is going to increase in demand quite a bit.
