Windows is competing with free OS. See linux (i.e. Ubuntu) and Mac OS. I don't see a bright future along this path if Microsoft keeps trying to sell it's OS. So I expect it will provide a free version to avoid being wiped out. In the same time, they will probably try to leverage their ecosystem with commercial product. They will try for instance to reproduce Apple's app market, bing, etc. They have enough money in the bank to finance this pivot.
