Lost Opportunity? Windows 10 Has the Same Minimum PC Requirements As Vista

cyranix Forced Obsolescence (554 comments)

Forced Obsolescence is ridiculous. Microsoft already makes enough money overcharging for what time after time is a mediocre product. Heres a concept: What if instead of forcing users to upgrade their machines and install new versions of their software every year, they made a single unified kernel that was easily updated and a consistent interface that users could keep and customize, and even have some choice in the look, design and behavior, that they could carry over to a new machine when they were ready without any loss or requiring fancy updates and reinstalls, etc. Oh yeah, that would be Linux. But then I guess they couldn't afford to copy and steal all the ideas that everyone else comes up with first and then bastardize them... It takes a lot of victimization to be able to afford to put hundreds of millions of dollars behind something like the surface :(
