"Cortana,... will eventually serve as the primary user experience."
I agree and I hope that this user experience becomes a reality. Star Trek fans are waiting for something like this for more than 20 years.

Will Windows survive
I think that windows will continue on. What I think will happen that as time goes on Windows will evolve as technology evolves. Therefore updates will continue. However they may still call it Windows 10. As long as people continue to use laptops and desktops.

 

However Microsoft must be successful in other markets other than PC. They must be more successful in tablet and cell phones in order for Windows to survive. Also security must improve more. Since Windows and Android are open systems they will continue to be more vulnerable to hackers. Better screening of their app stores is needed.
