What will it mean? Pay monthly to have every square millimeter of your privacy violated by Microsoft, and if you're really lucky, the machine will not shut down and refuse to operate at all in the event that the Internet is down for more than 24 hours.

No amount of saying "I've changed", "I'm sorry", or "I won't do that again" will do one damn bit of good.
