Microsoft Is Exploring Windows 10 Enterprise Lifecycle Management Subscription

Quote:It’s not clear if Microsoft will ever bring this feature to the consumer space. For now, it’s an enterprise-only capability. But there’s no indication that such lifecycle management will create any kind of value or positive experience from consumers. It’s hard to see how the company could change that. Microsoft’s big idea for improving help in Windows 10 was to shove everyone out to the web to use Bing for questions. It opted to kill the QA departments that used to handle Windows development. It decided to stop publishing details of patches in KB articles because supposedly people didn’t want that information. (This decision was later rolled back).

In short, Microsoft acts like a company that views personal PCs as a botheration and annoyance rather than a market — and so it’d prefer to monetize them more effectively and on an ongoing basis as opposed to investing in actually improving the platform. Hopefully, this is one experiment that’ll be confined to Windows enterprise, because there’s no chance we’re paying a monthly fee for the privilege of using our own systems.
