    Interesting comment from Chris Caposella from Microsoft, "...Windows 10 is a service..."  I guess that makes it official.  I wonder how long before they start to monetize that with a monthly or yearly charge for the "service".  My guess would be within 24 months.

    I feel the interviewers failed to step up to the plate and really challenge Chris Capossela on the user-unfriendly and downright deceptive way they crammed Windows 10 down peoples throats. Microsoft listens to users, really?
