You are giving Microsoft entirely too much credit.

Oh come one now, we'd be stupid to think that now that MS came up with a way to deliver software to people that they can make money off of they would abandon the other routes. For example, with the Xbox it's not like they abandoned PC gaming! Oh wait, that's exactly what happened.

It won't happen at first, but you never throw the frog into the Boiling pot of water, you put the frog in luke warm water and bring it to a boil, lest they make a mess.

MS does have a lot tied up in enterprise, but that won't stop them from squeezing out the part of the market they don't like to try and get them in line with the way they want things to be done.

We all know what happens to companies that ignore what their consumers want when demand is this overwhelming.

Agreed, but I don't know of anyone with a desktop OS who is asking for this, which is exactly the problem with Windows 8 (as a dektop OS.)

As people are also keen to point out, enterprise is good business for them, and windows 8 wasn't really built to cater to them at all, and while it may offer some things that might help in that environment, it also invites a host of other issues. I don't know of any IT professionals who are looking forward to 8.
