I think it's an interesting read. Perhaps we shall have modules, like for entertainment, music, buisness, et cetera.

And also pay for modules on a yearly basis.

That would suck.
If they go subscription based, I'm going to linux/ Mac OSx86, or sticking to XP.
I hate how they try to dig money out of us, as if $300 for a decent OS isn't charge enough.

That would totally suck,it would be almost like WoW...

Can't say I would be a fan of this. I think it would push me even farther away from Windows.
 


#5
It wouldn't push me away,but it would definitely increase the installation time...

Well, why is it that you don't like the idea of a suscription? You are paying for extra space at Google's server for pictures and email, and I beleive Flickr has that as well, so why not $30 or $50 a year for Windows?

Too expensive,especially for businesses,which won't be happy to upgrade their computers every time a new version is released...

Meh, buisnesses are always slow, a lot of then used 2000 when XP came out, and nothing stops them from using old Windows OSes.

Anyway, I think large buisnesses use VLKs that are paid on a yearly basis, or I could be totaly wrong. :p
