Can Windows 10 Survive In A World Of Free Operating Systems

For the past twenty years, the biggest rivals to Windows have all been free operating systems. Even then, none of them have come close to being a real threat, so I don't know why that would suddenly make Microsoft change how it makes money off Windows. It's insane when you think about it, Microsoft has been able to charge hundreds of dollars for each new version of Windows for decades even though there is a plethora of great free operating systems out there.

Like an old friend who's no longer the star quarterback, Windows 10 is a little more humbled, but a little more reasonable. Microsoft is listening to its users, building solutions across platforms, and working hard on building better products. I like where Microsoft is going with Windows. While the PC business model is broken, there will always be a space for Windows on our computers and in our hearts.
