— Actually, I am a Linux fan, but feel Microsoft
Windows 10 offers the best promise for the future,
if only Microsoft might not take lightly the suggestions of simple
users such as myself, give them due consideration, and and actually
adopt ideas which are better than the present status
for Microsoft’s future, either in terms of its market share
(3.6 percent of all PC users now using Linux), or Microsoft’s bottom line.

Actually, I am a sometime Linux fan, but feel Microsoft Windows 10 offers the best promise for the future, if only Microsoft might not take lightly the suggestions of simple users such as myself, give them due consideration, and and actually adopt ideas which are better than the present status for Microsoft’s future, either in terms of its market share (3.6 percent of all PC users now using Linux), or Microsoft’s bottom line. I ALWAYS used Windows until the last couple of years. I am somewhat fearful that if Microsoft makes no moves except those of a typical monopoly, to me they start looking like a “dinosaur in the Late Cretaceous,” since most Linux is almost as good in every area but artificial intelligence, right now, and is free. And actually the AI doesn’t need to be on your machine, since every OS or program which connects to the internet is now connected to the AI. (Scary, isn’t it.)
The first and most obvious suggestion I have for Microsoft is to allow and even strongly market Windows 10 by subscription, as they have done with their Office 365. If they charged $12 a month for Windows 10 Home and $15 a month for Pro, over a 20-month subscription, it should be noted that not only would you lure people now using XP, Vista and Windows 7, but some Linux users as well. But consider what $12 a month would add up to over say, a 20 month contract: That’s $240, right, considerably more than you make now.
A second idea would be to integrate the Linux Cinnamon desktop into Windows, either by default or as a choice made during installation. Linux is mostly all “open source,” so why not use it? All you’d have to do is to find a way to integrate Cortana into that environment.
Finally, for keeping and gaining market share and customer loyalty, Microsoft should really provide full support services for everything they sell. Imagine what a selling point THAT would be! These are my own ideas, I never read them anywhere except in articles I have written. Links to a couple of these, which I now admit took too negative a tone, follow.
