Do you think Microsoft is betting that some people will think they have to buy the latest Surface tablet to get the latest version of the OS? If true they then they just underscore that they are playing from Apple's (now dated) playbook.

They could have made a real Windows business here - sell major OS upgrades to tablets and phones too. But I guess since Apple isn't doing that...
