No, Microsoft doesn't owe us anything. They just have a hill to climb in convincing us that next time they won't drop all support for their next revolutional device the moment they have managed to create the next iteration. I'm speaking OS and ecosystem wise.
The difference is the spouse might be able to get his/her act together in a day, here that will take at least a couple of years...something really no one should have the time or patience for.Waiting on Microsoft for anything is like waiting on your drunk, abusive spouse to wake up one day and decide to clean up his/her act.
Hilarious post. I have been heavy in the tech world for 30 years. I knew everything about RT when I bought one. I bought mine for $99 at MS TechED when they were still new. Even then as a MS dev partner I knew RT had no future. I was joking about compensation. For $99 it was just a toy to play around with for a bit.what are you talking about? Windows RT was awesome, it was 90% windows and I could do all sorts of cool things with it and enjoyed it immensely, it was people like you who thought it would run full windows and then find out you can't run legacy apps... :eck: probably MS didn't help by not advertising ANYTHING about RT and what people were getting into. naw man I had some good times with my RT and STILL use it sometimes to this day! go look at some vids on YouTube from sean Ong and what the RT was capable of.. seriously kicks the ipads a$$. the ONLY thing that bothered me about RT is that apps couldn't run in the background when it was asleep.. that's it.
Do have to laugh when I hear those using the old adage “they never forced us to buy it”. Wonder if the same holds true when their new vehicle doesn’t quite perform as it should, or something malfunctions, and the dealer/manufacture ignores their pleas for a resolve?
Let me finish the response.The CEO is only focused on the cloud. It is what he was hired for, it is what he does and what he does best. Nothing will break his focus on the cloud. Ask him about a Windows Phone and watch him say, "..heyyy, I remember those". Microsoft left me some time ago on Windows Phone and after a while, I began to feel like Charlie Brown trying to kick a football being held by Lucy. I figure they all but abandoned the phone. So if you happen to have one that they claim to still support, count it as a blessing because those days are numbered.
They owe us clear statement about their mobile strategy, so we all see if it's still worth staying.
Personally, I am very loyal, but since my Lumia950 is close to end of it's life and there is no Win10 Mobile device to choose from I am close to buy new iPhone8.
Still hope we will see Surface Phone reveal in next few months, otherwise bye bye MS.
