Re: Win 10 free :)
@batye, I have not tried Win 10 yet, but I only have a seven years-old Dell laptop now. I went to the MS tech camp last year and saw some presentations.

My feeling is that Microsoft wants to change their model to a service oriented business where consumers pay for apps and MS sells advertisement. They are trying to copy Google's model of free services in lieu of targeting ads.

But the IoT versions look promising, but MS will have to fight for a place in the already crowded space.

I will keep my finger crossed and see how MS will perform. OS should be free and real revenue should come from App Store and other valued added services. MS needs to establsh a strong ecosystem to continue being successful in the battle field.
