By the numbers, it's rare when the end user owns the software. Even with customization I've noticed agreement say you're buying a license to use what your vendor creates for you. This long established way will be more obvious to people as more and more products move to a style I'll call "cloud licensing". I can't help those not appreciating or understanding the change but I so love many new products and upgrades that I've embraced it. The way a modern OS uses signed drivers and has encryption built in are important parts. It's not so obvious with a basic or desktop PC but we're also at a spot where great new hardware requires an up to date OS. It's just fine if you have a desktop PC and system working fine - not in a work mode or lifestyle where the latest stuff is a lot of help. There is a problem with not keeping up if you're not at a scenario like a fully-patched Windows 7 system. It's fairly often when I see the sometimes nightmare called BYOD (bring your own device) has me dealing with an employee or vendor who is not not even aware their system is compromised. Your home router is another place where keeping up is important. A percent that's way to big for health are compromised. This pushing updates that some hate do a lot to improve the security issue I've brought up here.
