How could it be anything else BUT a positive step? Could it be worse? :confused:

It can always be worse. I would be careful when asking such questions, as you may end up trapped in a garbage masher. :smiley:

I don’t know if 10 will be popular, but I’m willing to bet it will be a “subscription-based” operating system, with several draconian “copyright protection” features designed to make sure you keep paying for the exact same features (if you’re lucky) again and again. These same “protections” will probably prevent you from disabling the restricted boots safe boot… so no chance of installing a [I]decent[/I] OS (or even Windows 7 for that matter).

People will crack the safe boot to allow other OS to be installed. I think as long as the OS doesn’t rely on the cloud to run someone will crack the subscription check soon enough.
