Now it looks like Microsoft will be applying the subscription model to Windows 10. Thankfully for the home user this won’t affect you as the subscription model will be aimed at large businesses. Starting this fall, Microsoft is expected to launch Windows 10 Enterprise E3 for businesses which is basically a business-oriented version of Windows 10 that will not have a licensing cost.
Instead Microsoft will allow businesses to pay $7 a month to use the platform. However it should be noted that this is per seat, meaning that $7 will not cover your entire office as you’d probably have to buy several subscriptions depending on how many people will be using it. According to Yusuf Mehdi, the corporate vice president of the Windows and Devices Group at Microsoft, “For the price of a cup of coffee and a donut per day, you can get enterprise-class security on a per-user subscription basis. If you’re a cloud provider, this is now phenomenal.”
