Do not know about this win9 or whatever they are up to.
I think most companies are moving away from microsoft, now that linux is pretty good (like ubuntu). And most are now used to using android and apps (or iOS). As most only need to use a computer for basic stuff microsoft is probably feeling the heat.
You do not need all that fancy stuff if you do not use it, sure they have that in linux (if you want to) and android to, but it is a lot cheaper and you do not need to pay a premium price for basic stuff. So as far as finance goes, using microsoft and paying for licenses and all that, at a workplace. Not needed any more.
Thy only positive to come from Win9 is that they are going back to all the things lost from Win7. So that users who still want to use windows can feel at home, as they are used to in Win7.
But microsoft should have thought about this in the first place before removing the start button and all that.
