MS made this claim more than a year ago. It's likely to be the last time they issue a separate OS upgrade as a product.

If future consumers utilize all the features of the OS and adopt the cloud-based sharing and storage MS is offering then it will be a bit like iOS in that when you set up a new device it will draw your data from the cloud and not require you to slurp down all the updates since you used the previous device. Win10 will arrive over the air or by wire and you won't be "reinstalling" anything. Your data will be on OneDrive and other cloud services. The apps you bought to go along with Win10 will be available from your backups (or reclaimed from the MS App Store). Your mobile and desktop installations will continue to have incremental updates and fixes but you won't be seeing 40 of them each Tuesday.

This also means more stability, going forward, for enterprise installations because their "updated" third-party apps will be able to stay in place after they get re-written for universal code and ride along with Win10 for as long as you like. It will also mean the cost of updating a third party app will drop like a rock – because the app code will only need tweaking and not an entire re-write. Kinda like iOS and Linux.

When MS stops selling software on disk this new strategy makes complete sense. Office and Win10 will stabilize and people will be able to change machines (or leap off the desk and be mobile) without having to buy new stuff or leave their legacy app(s) behind.

It looks, to me, like one last jump from all the other OS versions to this new - continually useful - always ready OS. If MS can convince all the largest companies to make the leap to Win10 they will save millions weekly in support costs and legacy code support. Those prgrammers can then work on new stuff and leave the past behind.

The other thing this allows is for MS apps to run on almost every device (non-windows I mean) and they will be relevant once again. Win10 will have to win over the enterprise market and re-establish MS as the key to productivity or else the IBM/Apple coalition will eat away at their relevance until MS is just a historical reference.

SSDs can lose data in as little as 7 days without power

New data suggests that enterprise SSD data retention can fall below a week, while client data can reach 1-2 weeks in extreme temperatures.

Wait... what?!  I thought that the reason for SSDs was so that they provided permanent storage.  I didn't know that they always had to be plugged in!!!

I can't speak for every ssd out there. But I have a Samsung Evo 840. It has been purring for 2 years now. In all sorts of temps, and a multitude of different partitioning, and Linux systems. Hasn't failed me yet. I do however just put my OS on it, use a disk drive for my home folder, this way when I want to change my OS, I just reformat the ssd and point to my HDD to hold my home folder, from the home folder I back up to a USB HDD.
Edit: Also sometimes my desktop is not powered up for weeks at a time. I usually just use my tablet or phone. I'll crank up the desktop, check for any downstream updates and do my monthly billing with it or occasionally play FPS games on it. Other than that, I don't feel the need to waste electric...Also there is a very long warranty on it, they wouldn't offer a long warranty if it was known to fail so easily as the article implied. I say bull malarkey..😀
