Microsoft currently offers a subscription based service called Office 365 for productivity needs. If you would like to buy Windows, you need to buy it as a standalone product and once bought, you need not pay it annually. Microsoft has recently filed for a trademark for ‘Windows 365’. Windows 365 could be a subscription service similar to Office and consumers would pay yearly to have latest version of OS anytime.
But recently, Microsoft has announced a free upgrade to Windows 10 for new or existing Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1 devices, for those customers who upgrade in the first year. This means that, the obvious Windows 365 product which we are guessing has already been announced and it is ‘Windows 10’.
I think ‘Windows 365’ trademark might be related to enterprise services. What do you think?
