We announced that a free upgrade for Windows 10 will be made available to customers running Windows 7, Windows 8.1, and Windows Phone 8.1 who upgrade in the first year after launch.
This is more than a one-time upgrade: once a Windows device is upgraded to Windows 10, we will continue to keep it current for the supported lifetime of the device – at no cost.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
I quite liked how they handled it in recent film "The Machine" ( http://www.imdb.com/title/tt23... ). Questions like "Which smells better, a hospital corridor or a donkeys ass?" and "Mary saw a puppy in the window and she wanted it. What did Mary want?"
It's an ultrabook - answer: no.
Found that quote, but also found this from the Q&A bit afterwards:

"What will happen after the first year of free updates for W7/W8?"

Hmm, it's a (admittedly small) jump to go from that to subscriptions though..
They have wanted to do it for ages now
Where is this? I can't find it on the couple of Ars articles and none of the other sites have said such a thing..
The owner of a file doesn't tend to matter much in the Windows world, only who has Full Control rights to it
For example, what happens if you build a system whose maintenance relies on continued use of that IP after you leave? Are they forced to abandon the system that you built for them as part of your job? Since you could (or should) have known about this in advance, your voluntary use of this IP could possibly- if not probably- be construed as some form of implicit offer and/or agreement. What if they then want to sell that system commercially? What if they *only* want to sell it commercially because it lets them use- and build upon- your IP on the same terms as a work for hire?
You sue them for not having a license!
That seems to be how things work in the big industry world..
Maybe they're not being cheap, they're just expecting the *standard* seats to be the *same standard*?
Supposedly they do - the users there get the choice of running RHEL managed by the company or Fedora managed by themselves..
I quite like this artificial demo of VMwares DPM functionality:
Can you share the pros and cons?
Thanks for flying Church of England!
No choice over here..
Does it have anything along the lines of yum verify (http://bencane.com/2013/12/23/yum-plugins-verifying-packages-and-configurations-with-yum-verify/) or yum history (http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/yum-history-command/)?
Genuine question! Last time I properly used FreeBSD I don't think pkg_add even existed? Have downloaded the 10-current ISO and will give it a try in a VM over the weekend..
