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.

No cost is ever fixed. You should know better.

Even if there are rolling releases this cost would still be the same.

You still don't get it but then it's quite obvious you've never actually had to deal with this first-hand so I suppose I shouldn't expect more of you.

Wikipedia has an article on it, if you are interested.

That won't be necessary. I have enough years experience in business to understand what you're trying to say... It's just that you insist on not considering the full picture, even though you acknowledge it exists.

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

Upset? You've got to be kidding. You know better.

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.

I won't hold my breath.
