I actually agree with the parent post... something is going on to make this drastic of a change. Normally I would agree with you and say everyone has their tinfoil hats on too tight but there definitely seems to be something else to this. Maybe not a conspiracy but... are they hemorrhaging cash? User base slipping away faster than they'd like? What? These moves have the scent of desperation. Why not wait for the gradual switch by folks via new machines, OS support expiration, etc.? I thought they had plenty of cash/time and inertia to do it. They are damaging their brand, losing any goodwill they have by forcing users over, and not to mention scaring any up-and-coming business into choosing different software/platform (the ones that didn't have an Enterprise version the could avoid the Windows 10 mess).
