Here's a ComputerWorld article about Microsoft migrating Windows 10 users over to a Desktop-as-a-Service model:

This is still a couple of years out but I don't think there is going to be a lot of joy expressed on this message board about Microsoft's plans.

This is the very thing that will drive most users to another OS like LINUX or Something else. It will also keep many people from updating there current windows OS to the daas OS.

The question with capitalism is “How much profit is enough”?

They just cant be happy with enough they need more.....

I have no problem buying my OS every few years or even paying a nominal update fee but this idea Blows and you can count me out!
