[quotemsg=15507316,0,708622]Given Myerson's media campaign for Windows-as-a-service, I have to wonder why Microsoft isn't offering Windows 10 for free, period, to anyone with hardware that can support it.[/quotemsg]
Most Windows XP machines probably couldn't, plus, they've gotten a free ride jeopardizing the security of others through their own lack of interest in theirs. They should rightly have to pay for a full license.
@Red77star: Have you even seen Windows 10? I think it's strongly placed to take the reigns from Windows 7 as MS' best OS. It's new, it keeps the good stuff, strips a lot of the crap, and integrates a lot of cool new features I only wish we'd had already.
I don't think you've probably even tried the tech preview, let alone looked at Windows 10. As for 8, it's not nearly as bad as people say it is, supposing you have a little mental elasticity.
