This is a good thing in the long run, that they're turning Windows into a service. For multiple reasons, but mostly because it benefits everyone: users, developers, applications. You always get the latest features, and developers don't need to wait years for the new monolithic version to actually start using those new features.

This will leverage the development pace between Win and OSX, with the clear difference of Windows being a LOT more backwards compatible (simply because they HAVE to be, considering that they're still used on about 80% of all computing devices in the world, some of them in very crucial areas like medicine, military, research facilities, automation facilities, etc.).

...true, because W8/8.1 is built upon W7 heavily.
