Windows Ars analyses the concept of a modular Windows, and concludes: "Modularization - and the discriminatory pricing it permits - might appeal to accountants and economists. But it is bad for consumers, bad for Windows, and ultimately, bad for Microsoft. A modularized Windows, or worse still, a modularized subscription-based Windows, undermines the purpose and value of the Windows OS. If it comes to pass it will surely sound the death knell of the entire Windows platform."

Windows is going to sux no matter what it does. Anything that comes out of Intellectual Property based Software Development company has to sux.

Wow what a smart and insightful comment. I feel totally enlightened.

But seriously, I am Linux fangirl all the way but I still do think Windows XP nowadays is a good OS too. I have managed to crash it only once this year and it isn't too slow compared to Linux either. Oh, and have you f.ex. seen their Surface thing? I do think that's a pretty cool idea and will probably get lots of buyers. Sooner or later other companies will try to duplicate it, too. So, that kind of nullifies your comment.
