    Windows 8: Microsoft losing the upgrade thread

    The typical two year PC upgrade cycle and Microsoft's software roadmap is not going to hold in a Web-centric app-happy world. Does Redmond get it?

    There are two sides to Microsoft: big corporate installation Microsoft looking after the needs of companies that like things under control and predictable; geezer Microsoft chasing after anyone that threatens its turf in the consumer computing space.

    So, let's forget about big corporate loving Microsoft because, it has a license to print money, and for the foreseeable future, it is going to dictate how its customers evolve their vast PC installations so that they don't end breaking their vast IT infrastructures.

    A two to three year cycle is what the upgrades should be. Things change fast in the world of computing in today's market. There is a complete turnover of system performance at the rate of once a year now compared to every two to three years ten years ago.

    In the Mac world the OS on the average is upgraded every two years. This is done primarily because of the changes Apple does to it computers. Hence, the change helps to keep things running smoothly.
