Re: 1 billion
While we all enjoy the concept of getting stuff for $0 (free), the reality is that the creation of Windows 10 did not cost Microsoft $0 (free). I think that may people are willing to pay for Windows 10..... it just should not cost many $$$. I would suggest selling OS for much less than previous versions in the past. Lets get back to the model of making one's product affordable for everyone to be able to running Windows 10. As Microsoft has learned..... when you make your newly release version of Windows too high & already have a great Windows version currently in use by many users.... people choose to continue using older version instead of migrating to newer version. In the longer run, it is more expense to support older versions of software. All software companies need to find way make their customers an important value to migrate to new version of their software instead of keep using older versions.
