Windows 10 - Monthly Charges?

So, Windows 7 is looking better to me after several credible
media outlets confirmed on Friday that Microsoft will be rolling out a program,
called “managed desktop” that will have you paying a monthly fee to use Windows 10.  According to the report, MS had “no comment”. It’s no surprise as Adobe is already doing it wit their software such as Photoshop and Lightroom. When Windows 10 was offered “free”, I kept saying there are no free lunches.

It’s too bad that FRS doesn’t have a Mac client – this would certainly motivate me to jump ship.

Gentlemen that's an opinion piece. Surface as a service already exists. This is probably a test market for what is going to happen.
