    Almost 9,000 signed. Nice. Wonder how many needed before MS takes notice? Probably over 100,000.

    Well, let's hope more and more sign it, I did. Change.org is a popular site and I have personally signed quite a few petitions there with no problems afterward. No one should worry about putting their name behind this.

    Yeah I kind of figured the same, about 100,000 before Microsoft even bats an eyelid. Although I personally think that there's about 100 times the actual interest of whatever the final number comes out to be. Merely because this is a completely grassroots effort. There's no big backers pumping money into this thing to bring exposure to it. No TV ads. No radio commercials. No people on the streets and in shopping malls. Completely just a kid from Virginia and his computer.

    Pokémon Go, back in 2016, before Nadella and Co. completely killed off W10M, actually got 115,000 signatures for Niantic to bring that game to Windows. Given that Poke Go was rather silly compared to this petition, I think it would be awesome if we got 100,000! If they were still making Lumia 950s I'd have no doubt in my mind it would reach that or even twice that.

    All I know is that so far this thing is impressing me. It's neat how change.org has it set up too, when you refresh the page you can watch the names scroll on the screen of the last 20 or so folks to have signed the petition.

    Just for the hell of it, I asked 5 of my closets friends what Microsoft's Andromeda was, no one knew what I was talking about. My point. If you're not an MS follower you probably have no clue what Andromeda is. If people don't know, they can't/won't sign.

    This is a good question. I would think it doesn’t matter much (not trying to be negative) because they have and will make decisions internally based on things like ability to get parts, costs, software progression, etc. They want these devices, if they become reality, to work properly, produce the results their customers will expect and not lose money.
    The petition is more for fans to keep their hopes up while waiting for MS to get off their a** and let people know what the final answer is. I don’t like seeing honest people get jerked around.

    Got a little action on Forbes compliments of Ewan Spence...

    Although he takes a somewhat pessimistic view. But I guess no press is bad... ???

    Just passed 10K this morning. Read about 20 French "reasons why I signed" in a row. All I can figure is some French blogger picked up on this. And that Twitter is playing a role. So if anyone has a couple thousand Twitter followers? What can it hurt?

    lol, negative Paul took notice. I guess that is good even though 75% of the short article was a critique of the petition's author's writing skills.

    Interesting growth for a petition that has basically zero major backing and advertisement, to garner quite a number. It's quite near 15k signups right now that some sites have picked it up. I do wonder how far it would go.

    Well we know for now where it's not going.

    Although I think it might dry out from hits by next week. Something new maybe in the news will catch sails at some point.

    It's a good thing.
