It's an 'about time' move - however, I'd happily pay for a version that was easier to manage. Windows 8.1 servicing is like trying to clear a minefield with a stick.
XP and 7 just ... work. Easy to manage, easy to trouble shoot. What was so difficult about this 8.x release? If 10 is just a re-dressed version of 8.1 I won't bother.
Waiting for the Tech specs to appear.
