I used to think this TLA meant Total Cost of Ownership -- but that clearly can't be right. At least that's plainly not what it means when Microsoft uses the term.

Perhaps "TCO" stands for: Totally Contrived Outcome ?

or maybe for: Typically Cynical Obfuscation ?

(I'm tempted to mis-quote Inigo Montoya: “You keep using that TLA, I do not think it means what you think it means”)

Totally Controlled Outcome, as in controlled by Microsoft with the results guaranteed in advance regardless of the data.
