Re: Where's the profit for Microsoft then?
"So either Microsoft is leaving a lot of money on the table, or expects to recover it in Office365 subscriptions (doubt it), or I've understood this incorrectly and they mean that W10 upgrades from W7/8 will run W10 for a year and then you'll have to pay for using it after that first year?"
Or they're gonna go the pay for patches updates, which I'm increasingly seeing coming, in light of the recent "we don't patch difficultly exploited reported bugs". Since the whole thing is a security nightmare, there is money to grab, here, and probably nowhere else.
How it's gonna go with users is anything to go by ...
