Did anyone else notice that the March update was called a "free" update? I wonder if they are going to come out with updates that aren't free?

I would highly advise they remain free, in the catchup position they're in, having updates that you have to pay for is a very very bad idea. As it is I hate capitalism, if it were confirmed that even one update were to be paid for I would immediately jump ship back to Android.

I Really Doubt It

If MS began charging for their WP updates, of course it would piss everyone off.

The other thing that would happen, is that all the people with Windows Phones that don't really keep up with the details would miss out. They may get a notification for an update, but if it costs any money at all (or even if a free update is not easily implemented) they will not do it. This will mean that a good portion of the consumers will not get full use out of their phones. This would include features that MS has spent considerable time and money developing.

Microsoft certainly knows better than this. They would be throwing away a lot of their hard work just to make a little money. They will make so much more if they can get the OS working better.

I hope I'm right...

I would think a licence deal between Microsoft and the OEMs/ODMs prohibits the licencer from charging the end user for software updates.

Yeah, I'm not really worried about it, I just thought it was crazy that the included the word "free" in the talk about the updates.
