    Since I sold my S3, got a 520, never looked back. Transferred my photos from GMail, Dropbox to OneDrive. Got a Windows Tablet recently and converted 2 of my relatives.

    Windows Laptop.
    Waiting for a decent smartwatch (Pebble support would be sufficient)
    Now rocking a 830!

    Only non Microsoft service I use is Vimeo/YouTube lol.
    Microsoft should buy Vimeo!

    I am more tied to Apple than Microsoft at this point but email and one drive are things that I used daily from Microsoft.

    iPhone 6 plus: I don't think there is a better phone on the market. I use iMessage, iCloud daily. I use iCloud to backup my phone and sync my contacts and calendar across devices. The app quality is light years of anything on android, and apps are actually available on iOS vs windows phone, when there are apps that are both on windows phone and iOS, two things: on windows phone the quality of the apps is lesser, and rarely updated. I quickly found the people hub of outlook.com is a cluster****, and doesn't sync correctly. Online is shows perfectly, but the issue is if you have contacts in other places (like LinkedIn, Facebook, gmail) it actually isn't in the people hub, it just shows up. Try syncing your contacts to an iPhone, it only shows outlook.com contacts even thou online is shows all contacts.

    IPad Air 2: I only use as a consumption device.

    Surface Pro 3: this device is my daily driver, I find that windows 8.1 or even windows 10 is the best desktop OS. Add on the latest office 365/office 13. Nothing is better for work and school. One Note is simply the best app ever for both work and school, top it off with a stylist (surface pen), nothing is better.

    iMac: it's a POS, OS X is horrible. It slows down like an old windows 95-ME machine used too. Office 2011 is horrible on it.

    Apple TV: I use it daily to watch Netflix, Hulu or stream Sling TV from my iPad.

    I will never be 100% MS or Apple. I am emotionally loyal to MS as I find when they do execute on something, nothing is better (windows, office, and windows phone 8.1) but I wish they would stay their course. Consistent Yearly updates to their flagship devices would be welcome. It's the reason why I left windows phone.

    I use mostly Apple products, but productivity is 100% Microsoft. Outside of FaceTime.

    Pretty much full MS. I never really thought about it until now. Xbox One, Nokia 1020, Windows 8.1, etc... I do use Linux Mint on a few older laptops I have that the kids surf around on, but that's really it. I have no Google or Apple products, which was not the case three years ago with a IPhone and IPad. I tried Android (Nexus 7) and returned it. I can't get into Android. In my book the two best companies on the OS side is easily Apple and MS, which is a surprise to nobody.

    I would say I am totally Microsoft, just, a Dell desktop running Win 7 Pro, a Dell Desktop running XP (disconnected from the internet I may hasten to add and used for trying out stuff) a Toshiba laptop running Win 7 Pro but I have discs to upgrade (?) to Win 8 Pro if I want, a Hipstreet 7inch tablet running Win 8.1, a Windows phone, 535, running 8.1 but where I digress is my choice of tablet. It's a Samsung Tab 2, 10.1 and the reason for that is simple, I did not like the Surface RT even though there was a good deal in place, minus the keyboard, at the time. I tried one and didn't like the version of Windows one bit so Samsung Tab it was. Even now I find the Surface 3 Pro prices extortionate and so no Surface for me but one unifying piece of software I can use on all my devices is One Note. I think this Microsoft product is one of the most underestimated pieces of software they have produced, I used a trial version many years back and was hooked, Evernote is close but One Note nails it.

    I may be later in the year if they will put out a flagship phone when windows 10 comes out. My work computer is a Surface Pro 3 with the dock that has two additional monitors hooked to it. Great device. I use outlook email and one drive, office 365. Right now only thing missing is the phone. Hoping windows 10 will be all everyone is hoping it will. Regardless I plan to try it. My Passport does an excellent job with the MS services as well.

    I just added a Microsoft Band to my collection today. So that makes,

    1 Custom built PC
    1 Original Surface Pro
    5 Xbox 360's for Windows Media Center TV and gaming
    1 Lumia 920 and 1520
    Subscription to office 365
    and now the band

    Next payday I will be adding a small tablet for my son so I can use the Microsoft Family Safety with it.

    It's such an exciting time to be a Microsoft Fan.

    2 Windows clustered servers
    1 8.1 desktop
    2 windows phones
    2 win 10TP tablets and a VM
    1 Win8.1 Enterprise workstation laptop
    2 Win8.1 Pro laptops
    1 Ubuntu laptop (retired)
    1 Sony zv3 Android

    Daughter wants to retire the z3v when Windows 'matures' and has the apps she needs, e.g. Snapshot, etc. She's quite interested in my next Windows flagship phone with Win10. And better yet, she's interested in my MS Visual Studio... MSDN to the rescue

    I used to be back in late 2010-early 2011. Had a Samsung Focus (my first smartphone), Xbox 360, and a gaming PC.

    Currently I have an iPhone 6, iPad, I've upgraded the same gaming PC (and I'm running Windows 10 preview), and I've ditched consoles altogether. My girlfriend and I share a Macbook Air often as well.

    I'd be willing to go back to a WP, but not until they do some massive closing of the app gap (especially when it comes to gaming, banking, and Google). I'll probably always use a Windows PC though. Nothing does gaming better than Steam IMO.

    I would imagine that most of us here at full Microsoft.

    White Lumia Icon
    Surface Pro 3 i5, 128gb
    Dell XPS 8500 running Windows 8.1
    Xbox One 500gb + Kinect
    Lenovo work laptop running Windows 7

    As far as services: I've got a Live membership, Live/Outlook email, Xbox Music pass for a couple years, OneDrive as my exclusive storage, Outlook account through work.

    There's probably more that I am missing. But I am one satisfied Microsoft customer.

    Yes and so are all 6 members of my household. We all use windows 10, my little one has a asus windows tablet, my son has a surface RT, I have a surface pro 1 and my wife has a surface pro 3. LOVE it and will not be going back to droid. My wife has come over on her own from android and I even tried to talk her out of it. Onedrive, office365 and all the bells and whistles have made my life great!

    Almost. Have two desktops running Windows 8.1 and 7.0, one laptop running 8.1, one running Windows 10 technical preview and a Lumia 635. Only exception is a Kindle Fire HD that my kids gave me for Christmas two years ago (I converted it to an Android 4.3 tablet subsequently). I use this for done apps that I need that are not available for the Windows phones, and for reading since it has a much larger screen, as well as some video streaming over Wi-Fi at home (same reason). I do plan on upgrading all of my computers to Windows 10 upon release.

    Windows 7 laptop
    Apple OSX desktop
    Windows 7 contraption (HP TC1100)
    Lumia 1520
    BlackBerry Passport
    Samsung Ativ S Neo (Mrs. aka Boss)
    Palm T/X

    An eclectic mix but every one is on MS services exclusively. Outlook, Onedrive, Office & Bing. Desktop browsers are FF w/ Bing as default search engines. I don't do any gaming so I have no idea what an Xbox even looks like. My idea of gaming in my 20s was putting on a firesuit, strapping in around a rollcage and lettin' her rip for a few laps. Ah, I miss the smell of 114 Octane Sunoco Racing Fuel.

    well i try not to become too invested in any platform.have been using an iPad 2 sometime back.
    currently using a nokia 1520. my old windows 7 pc is on its last legs but i don't like windows 8 in a laptop so bought my first mac.A Mac pro 13 retina.
    currently my primary devices are Mac pro and nokia 1520.
    i wanted a tablet too a cheaper option,mainly to read texts and magazines so got an acer w4-820(win 8.1 tab) on 50% discount from amazon.thought it was a bargain but turns out I'm not using it much mainly coz the screen is very low quality compared to my 1520 and mac.im not blaming it as it is a cheap device but I'm not using it much and is trying to sell maybe.
    i might try a linux distro in my old windows 7 pc as it has become very slow these days.

    that said i like microsoft services.one note,one drive.one drive is my primary storage place.
    one note could have been very useful to me if it had a better wp app. since the wp app is so crap I'm nowadays using evernote more as it has a better mac app too.

    now that when i typed this i feel like I'm slowly moving away from microsoft lol. that said my next phone would most likely be an iPhone as it has better microsoft services anyways.

    I'm full Microsoft. Lumia Icon and an M8 w/Windows, Surface Pro 3, HP Stream 7, Asus gaming desktop and gaming laptop, Xbox One w/Kinect in bedroom and living room, Office 365 and Xbox music etc. Microsoft Band. I also have Windows 10 on a 635 and VM.

    It's tough lately.

    While this may come off petty, my biggest gripe is - wait for it - the lack of and quality of apps on Windows Phone and Windows. On the phone it's like hit or miss if I get notifications with certain apps (including Facebook, Twitter and a Microsoft's own Groupme) whereas others (Facebook Messenger) seem able to competently push notifications. On Surface etc. the app quality is just a joke. Facebook, Flipboard and Twitter don't even stay logged in half the time. It's just enormously frustrating.

    But I stay for the core UIs, PC and Xbox gaming, and a belief that Microsoft is a company with really strong values (they were one of the first companies to have a gay employee organization for example.)

    But it's tough lately.

    Sometimes you just want the dumb stuff like Twitter to just WORK.
