I am not like all those who believe everything should be free, no no. But I think that Microsoft should make Windows free for individuals. It's not a matter of being nice. Just look at the fact that Microsoft is already monetizing "us" when we install Windows. To install windows 10 you are highly pushed to register a Microsoft's account, and we all know what it means. It means that Microsoft will track all our activities, learn everything about us, and use all of this for marketing purposes. In the same kind of idea, now, to get Windows' app, you need to use their own store, which is also generating incomes for Microsoft. So all this together, I say that, Microsoft would have everything to gain in making Windows Home free. Make it free, and get money from additional things and features. This is how things should be.
Okay, you'll tell me, that, they are already offering free upgrade from Windows 7 and 8 to Windows 10, and, who knows, it might be a step toward a free version of Windows, in the upcoming future.
Now, I also understood that Windows 10 might be the last "new" windows, and that, from now on, only updates will be released, so it may be free? Does it mean that if someone owns a Windows 7/8/10 license, he'll never have to pay again Microsoft to profit from the latest version of Windows?
