    Originally it was going to be 10" and under, it seems they moved it to 8" and smaller...

    So Windows 10 on the phone looks like a huge improvement, the universal apps look like a huge improvement (would've liked to see improved OneNote though), new Xbox app (and game streaming from a local Xbox One) looks great, Hololens looks insane, but the one thing I'm not sold on at all is how Windows 10 is going to make my Surface Pro experience better. I'm really still just hoping it doesn't make it worse. I guess when the new build comes out in the next week I'll see for myself.

    Windows as a service sounds suspiciously as though it will also be available only on a subscription basis. No more one-off license purchases. Can't say I'm surprised, but can't say that I like the model either.

    They say once you upgrade it'll be supported with software updates for the lifetime of your device.

    At least for now, they're only referring to that as the way you get updates, not licenses.
