Linux distros come out at speed, and Mac OSX has been on a 1-2 year release schedule for a while. Now it's clear Microsoft are also playing with the idea of an ever-incremental release cycle, and likewise drop prices dramatically per release (again, like Mac OSX does). This has interesting implications for both private/home users and corporate users. It'll be interesting to see if it goes ahead, and what it means for those slower moving customers who reject regular upgrades (working in corporates for many years, I regularly see people skip major revisions of OSes from all vendors).
