Windows 10 to be the Last One of ‘Windows’

At Microsoft Ignite conference this week, Microsoft’s developer Jerry Nixon stated “Right now we are releasing Windows 10, and because Windows 10 is the last version of Windows, we are all still working on Windows 10.” He also explained about the release of Windows 8.1 when Windows 10 was in works. As there is no secret update to Windows 10, employees can freely talk about future updates. Although it seems like the tech giant is killing off ‘Windows’ by not doing any future versions but the reality is quite different.

It’s all about Windows as a Service. Microsoft has changed the way it engineers and delivers Windows, and Windows 10 is the initial result. It is probably the end of the idea of version numbers. There will be just regular improvements and updates made to Windows 10 instead of big releases.

Are they really inspired by Arch Linux?

So they are shifting to a similar model as OS X

I didn't understand this part, or may be I'm not aware of?

You mean apple too, moving on to same model for OS X? Because as of now, AFAIK, OS X is installed on Mac's natively as like Windows.

Well, cloud based subscription model means it's a bad news for piracy users. Infact, I believe adobe also moved to this model recently.

Looks like Cloud is the future!!

Like how OS X gets minor updates instead of a major ones and the main version remains unchanged i.e 10.X X being the minor update

Ahh I see. But I believe OS X do release major versions too. Though it's not as frequent but they do release like Mountain Lion, Snow Leopard etc.

Isn't it? Or am I heading wrong way?

Actually, ever 10.x release like Leopard (10.5), Snow Leopard (10.6), Lion (10.7), Mountain Lion (10.8), Mavericks (10.9) & Yosemite (10.10) are the major big releases. I think that Microsoft will go the rolling release model like Arch Linux, which, you correctly said. Let's wait & watch.

Moving everything to Cloud isn't only a bad news for p!rates but also bad news for third world countries like India with pathetic internet plans and also a bad news for people who likes to have control of their own data. Cloud means less privacy since government can easily snoop on us. If it's in the cloud, likes of NSA have full access to it.

Also, the dependency. Cloud means greater dependency on network. What if a cloud service goes down? We loose access to everything. So cloud services in summary means, no piracy, no privacy, no control and more dependency. That's the way I look at it. Not most would appreciate this trend.

Use Linux then.

Use Linux then.

+1 to this!!Linux is deadly fast
but most required apps,games,driver etc are on windows itself
also windows is easier to operate,not everyone likes to keep typing sudo-apt-get

Already on the path. ;)

Or use open SUSE ? Solid dependency resolver build in.

I like the path Windows is taking. I prefer an rolling release model(Office 365) for software which are connected and are priced according to market dynamics(I think 365 subscription in India is priced comparatively less than its US counterpart; Unlike Photoshop.....adobe is freaking expensive).

The only problem will be the availability of updates and feature consistency in all markets.
[MENTION=159164]$hadow[/MENTION], nope, Elementary OS is free, but they are using that donation area rather cleverly. You need to put 0 to download it for free.

if every thing is move to cloud then what about MS server edition's, means it is just for client version or this logic will apply on server version also in near future.
