Microsoft tells big biz: No free Windows 10 for you, crack wallets open

'So Microsoft's strategy seems to be pushing out new features to consumers as soon as they are tested. Enterprises can then wait and see what borks what, then add in features as they like once stability has been proven.

...

"We're trying to figure out how consumers get a one-size-fits-all OS and features as fast as possible at a quality bar that businesses wouldn't tolerate. Business wants to get features when they are ready for them, and will pay for it."'

What does "they" refer to in the last sentence, businesses or features?

All this reads to me as if consumers are, in fact, the testers and only once a feature has had enough releases to stabilize it will it be offered to the paying customers. Or am I reading it wrong?
