Thanks Microsoft: Cyborg Licensing User-Based Windows OS Is Here

Bring Your Own (and Be Your Own) Device Within Reach

by Lane Shelton | 11.11.14

Microsoft has embraced “by device” selling for their Windows desktop operating system since what feels like the beginning of time. But change has compounded over the past several years and truly transformed our computing experience. So much so that ordinary end-users (myself included) are lugging around a bagful of devices in order to stay connected at all times. We all want to work and play on devices that we choose to use—not to be hampered by things like file synchronization and compatibility or good taste getting in our way. As a result, we are slowly but surely becoming a community of cyborgs. Finally, Microsoft is listening! We want to bring our own device and even BE our own device. What does that all really mean?

The biggest news coming out of Microsoft this month is the announcement about Windows 10.  We have to be honest that the name is a bit of a surprise. We were expecting Windows 9 or just “Windows” (you know, like “iPad”), but they got us on this one. Apparently, Microsoft is signifying that this will be their final “major” release of their flagship product, with the future bringing on evolutionary, in-place tweaks and modifications. This is probably a smart move as most customers are prone to skipping versions, at least for the last 15+ years or so. Here’s what we know so far:
