Windows By all early reports, Windows 8 is going to be a good operating system. Microsoft's hegemony may be crumbling in a mobile computing onslaught, but its core empire remains undimmed. However, whereas Windows 7 had three versions, Windows 8 will apparently be ballooning to 9 versions.

Do you really not understand marginal costs? We specifically said that *development costs* approach $0 per marginal sale because they do. It doesn't matter if it's being developed for 1M or 1B, the dev costs to develop a version is fixed. Even if there are rolling releases this cost would still be the same. Wikipedia has an article on it, if you are interested.

Other costs may not go towards zero, but I specifically said that too so I don't know what your so upset about.

Edit: Anyway, I'm not interested in pursuing this conversation with you since I couldn't care less about the outcome and you refuse to take it seriously.
