In other Microsoft news, the company is rumored to be working on its next generation operating system. Codenamed Windows Blue, it will be a low cost upgrade for existing Windows users that will be based on a subscription service for updates.

If they do it should open up the market wide enough for Google to swoop in and release their own OS and take over the market. Hell, they might even buy Microsoft after they go bust.

Well, at least they can capture the government market as governments will mandate use of the new system with monthly fees. They will also mandate use of the system by contractors, specifying use in the terms and conditions of contracts.

What a wonderful, captured system we have.

If they are actually considering that as a viable plan, it probably means they expect to see cash flow problems in the future. IMHO

Re: Microsoft Rumored to start charging for windows OS with a Subscription per month
All you commenting on Gates do know that he has no active involvement with running Microsoft anymore, and hasn't for years right?

Bill Gates is currently running the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

Gates relinquished day-to-day activities when he stepped down as chief software architect in 2006, while staying on as chairman.

He was succeeded by Steve Ballmer who has been heavily criticized for making major management changes at Microsoft. The company's share price has been stagnant during Ballmer's tenure and it is possible he will be replaced soon.

There has been a list of potential successors to Ballmer as Microsoft CEO, however all have departed the company. They've had a major talent drain. Especially on November 12th when Steven Sinofsky, the Microsoft executive who turned its Windows franchise around and led the effort to release Windows 8, left the company. He was widely rumored to have been waging war with Ballmer and was thought to be Ballmer's likely successor.

Exactly, the tards here are clueless about Microsoft. Gates has been gone for years and has nothing to do with Microsoft and its day to day operations. He stepped down to work with his billions and his charities. He plans to give all his wealth to charity before he dies. He even said that he will only leave 10 million dollars each to his children. Thats not much when you consider he is worth billions and there is 10 x 100 million in a billion.

So have a little sense when your busy hating. You are directing your hatred at the wrong person.

I predict The internet as we all know it will be gone VERY VERY soon.
I see a major false flag internet event that will bring the net down ushering in passage of the new cyber security bill. the Sheep that cant get their porn or facebook fix will be begging for these laws to be passed.
I predict part of this new bill will introduce some new digital fingerprint type system that people will be required be a part of to logon to the new internet.
Total control of the news(again),software, movies and music is exactly why everyone is pushing SO hard for Cloud based software, they feel they will be able to control piracy and of course rake in mega profits.

 Quoting: American Sith: Darth Shillerus


Gates doesn't run the company anymore and he's made it clear that he hated the direction it went. As much as you want to hate the man, he was the one that actually brought us the personal computer to an affordable level. It wasn't Steve Jobs or anyone else. Steve Jobs computer was expensive, Gate's computer was cheap and affordable. He provided a cheap alternative which exploded around the world. Keep in mind, he was fighting big giant IBM and computer manufactures that wanted to keep draconian methods to keep everything in control via terminals and mainframes. It was his methods that gave us all these open computers that allowed other operating systems to expand like linux. It was him alone that allowed all the IBM clones to expand like crazy, giving us what we have today. Steve Jobs brought elegance to computing but Bill Gates made it possible to have a fucking computer in the living room, otherwise we'd still be in an era with IBM mainframes.

It's pretty sad seeing his company go the route of IBM and doing the same shit all over with the age of terminals and mainframes.
