I seem to remember similar aspirations for Windows 8, but after that debacle, they have to put out a major release to distance themselves and set a new baseline. If they can keep the Windows 10 brand unblemished, they could stick with it for years, perhaps doing Mac OS Xesque point releases as rollups every once in a while.
