[PCWorld] Yes, Windows 10 subscriptions are coming, at least for enterprise - Page 4

post #31 of 92
If that $7 per user fee includes support, then Microsoft are fools.

We would be happy to pay only $70 a month for full microsoft support.

Yes it always been that way. Eterprise is/was always a subscription. And its expensive to get. This adds a cheap option for small tiny businesses.

So what microsoft is doing is just giving businesses more choice. This is a good thing.

And no, regular windows consumers have no subscription to fear anytime soon or in the near future.

Thanks. thumb.gif That's what I thought. I guess it's a slow news day. Sky is falling and all that.

Per license though? Or in bulk.

Now corporations have to keep track of which computers are currently being used and which ones are not. Now if there is an issue with a PC it just gets replaced with a different one and the original is re-imaged. That will be a nightmare to keep track of how many licenses are actually being used.

I have factory machines still in use that are 12 years old. 5x XP licenses each. 5 x 356 x 12. $21,900 to license that over 12 years. $22k or 5 licenses. This does not make sense for user.

I honestly didn't peg OCN as gullible enough to go Alex Jones on this thread so easily. As stated above - this has always been a thing with enterprise. Wow, just wow.

The sensationalism is strong in this thread, as is the apparent falling sky.

People aren't freaking out because of the face value of the news. They fear its spread to the consumer space.

No suprises here

They will boil this frog slowly raising temprature

Step 1 - subscriptions for Enterprise as option
Step 2 - subscriptions for personal users because providing options is always better
Step 3 - promoting only subscription version wherever they can while slowly increasing prices of permanent license
Step 4 - move to subscription only

Office is currently at step 3, Windows 10 enters step 1...

I dont understand what your math is trying to show at all. 5 machines, to license them on this sub would cost a bit over $5,000 for 12 years of time. What is that 356 in your math you have?

They have no reason to. Again, this has always been part of their enterprise licensing.
