    Good enough timeframe

    Anyways it doesn't really apply to anybody except enterprise users on the long term servicing branch

    The rest of us will be forced to download updates periodically

    It's hard to even imagine what technology will be like in 2025 :)

    Isn't it quite a bit early to talk about the end of something which has not been officially born yet?

    I really don't like this - no control over updates. In Preview Builds I'd get all the updates for Office components I didn't have installed - installing. Eg: All the updates for Excel, Powerpoint etc even though I don't install or use them. In 8.1 I'd get offered them but could at least hide them.

    Windows 10 is the last Windows version, but end of support is in 10 years?

    What then?

    Or is that like Windows 8 vs Windows 8.1 type thing?

    Count me in :D how ironic: now they offer a free upgrade and I even got genuine licenses, but still I have to pirate it if I don't wanna be a victim of their featuritis.

    I Agree, Paul. I hope it gets cancelled and Microsoft's stocks crash. The builds been archived for historic reasons much like Longhorn.

    Windows 11 with Win32 Emulator for old Win32 Apps thanks to Windows 11 Feedback, Windows 11 full of Modern/Universal/Metro Apps domination only. Nothing Win32 left, that's Windows 11 for you.

    I think (it's a rumor) NASA has a project to abandon Moon-base and migrate to Mars Base. :rasta:
