Microsoft plans to update the Operating System in an incremental manner going forward. Rather than building a new version of Windows every few years as they had done in the past, Microsoft will most likely push periodic updates to make improvements, add functionality, and as time passes, change the Operating System.  Microsoft has the idea of seeing “Windows as a service” and a Microsoft spokesperson told the Verge that, “recent comments at Ignite about Windows 10 are reflective of the way Windows will be delivered as a service bringing new innovations and updates in an ongoing manner, with continuous value for our consumer and business customers.”
