Comment: Microsoft Marketing, Money & Subscriptions (Score 2) 570

by BoRegardless (#48868593) Attached to: Microsoft Reveals Windows 10 Will Be a Free Upgrade

Used to be computers were replaced every year or two and at most 3, giving Microsoft a short turnaround in selling Windows for continual income.

With hardware being more reliable and in more of a limited set of new features, people don't need to upgrade as often and MS sees their OS income in long term decline.

Anyone who tells me Microsoft is not moving toward yearly subscriptions is doing spin.

The gent who wakes up and finds himself a success hasn't been asleep.
