I had an update today which concluded by opening up Edge displaying an ad for Windows 11.
MS made the big mistake of promising Windows 10 would be the last Windows
And making it free!
How can they support a product for free?
I dont like all the phone home stuff
Revenue from subscriptions more than would make up the difference.How can they support a product for free?
I think the sudden high bar to clear in W11 is explainable by the new Windows 365 subscription you can get which claims not to be VDI but smells a lot like VDI, and is basically a cloud based VM running Win11 that you can use. More info: https://www.theregister.com/2021/07/14/windows_365/
Nothing quite like 'the new shiny' to convince people to adopt it.
