    Aye. They may reapply with a cut-down version, but they are definitely late to the Subsidized PC Party. People PC beat them by over a decade, among others.

    I doubted whether MS would have pulled it off and I think they knew it too, but they up to something.

    Years ago I said eventually we will rent the os, aps,games, all of it online and streaming. I know this is a little different. But I never thought we would have to pay by how much computing resources we consume. That's not a grand Idea for someone like me.

    I wouldnt like that at all, I would be forced to go the Linux or Apple way which neither option is very grand in my opinion.
