As much as I'd like to say that this is just another hysterical Express article I've seen just how pervasive 'games as a service' has become (to the detriment of the consumer) and have a sinking feeling that we are now going to see OS as a service...  noooo:

https://www.express.co.uk/life-style/science-technology/999646/Windows-10-update-monthly-fee-Microsoft-charging

Prolly makes sense for certain users - small companies that can't afford dedicated IT for instance...

...not for SuperUsers like me tho obvs.  angel1

Gubbage on your scale would probably gut Microsoft's technical service budget...  whistle:
Some days I think the only thing keeping me from becoming homicidal is that the voices can't agree on which weapon would be the most fun.

Remember, when a news headline start with a question the answer is normally no.
