Going to kick off a "yearly update schedule" eh? There is never an anti-trust lawyer around when you need one. :lol:

The CCleaner SLIM version is always released a bit after any new version; when it is it will be HERE :-)

Pssssst: ... It isn't really a cloud. Its a bunch of big, giant servers.

A free annual update of the Operating System would be fine by me,

BUT ONLY IF all my installed third party applications and utilities and licences were automatically copied and correctly merged as part of the update.

 

I think that would require either putting the clock back to the good old days when every application had its own INI file,

or absolute segregation between O.S. and application registry hives.

seems all a bit pie-in-the-sky at this early stage.

Blue so soon after Win8, a free OS - all new territory for MS.

 

but good find Hazelnut. that's the first i've heard about it. be interested to see what my monthly mag says about it next time.

I would never use an OS if I couldn't at least re-install it from a CD/DVD when disaster strikes and since it's Windows a disaster would eventually happen. It would be a complete pain in the backside to have to re-install some funky old OS to only then have to install an upgrade to a new one - ah things get dumb and dumber. The subscription thing I wouldn't partake in.

 

If they do this people may not be so inclined to update to newer Windows versions, and I can only imagine a subscription hiccup issue where it effs up sort of like how so many antivirus products turns off prematurely and customer support being of little help whatsoever.

Microsoft kinda randomly picks their code names out of a hat (Mojave, Longhorn, Blue)

 

ADVICE FOR USING CCleaner'S REGISTRY INTEGRITY SECTION

DON'T JUST CLEAN EVERYTHING THAT'S CHECKED OFF.

Do your Registry Cleaning in small bits (at the very least Check-mark by Check-mark)

ALWAYS BACKUP THE ENTRY, YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU'LL BREAK IF YOU DON'T.

and how many of those names the OS has during developement actually make it to consumer release - i think none.

so Blue will be Win9 or some other hat picked, roll-off-the-tongue, catchy word.
