Welcome to the all-new Windows Central Forums! - We're still moving some things around, so you may see a few quirks here and there, but we're working on getting things fully completed as soon as possible. For now, take a look around, and if you run into any major issues, please let us know in this thread!
Andromeda's for me too! ;0) BTW have you checked to see if Mint or Voxer have a PWA?
Me. It's for me.
I'm 42. I'm mature, I don't depend on my parents to buy my devices for me. I'm a hard working professional with disposable income, who values productivity over snapchat lenses.
I prefer to create things that matter rather than consumer apps that are built for a generation with the attention span of a 3 month old.
I use Windows 10 because I know, without question, that it's the very best Operating System on earth for professionals. It's the only Operating System for true professionals.
It's for me. The professional.
Or, put another way, when I slip into my Xbox alter ego...I want Andromeda to be to me what the Pip-Boy is to my guy on Fallout. It's my only device. It can hook up to other devices if it needs to but it's my one true computing device.
Yes, even professionals need some play time
To ignore the other platforms as if only children use them is ignoring the truth. Microsoft can learn from what these platforms achieved or fail again.
I don't necessarily think MS should ignore the younger generation with this device. But they need to have clearly in mind what segment of the younger generation their device is for. They need to associate the device with lifestyle. That's just plain marketing 101.
MS clearly has an edge in gaming. So yeah gamers! A foldable device like this could appeal to young folks who read a lot. And if they built say a Visual Studio "light" app that would allow coders to code on the go, or integrated it closely with some of their HoloLens efforts (and brought the price way down on that device), or came out with some sort of Robotics "coding" app alongside an electronic instruction receiver unit, they could appeal to the intellectual, young engineer, crowd.
If these succeed, in time, as other kids see other kids using them, they begin to appeal to the "popular" crowd who are drawn to a particular device because it makes a statement of status. But I don't think MS stands a chance with the cool-kid crowd straight out of the gates. iPhone has that pretty neatly wrapped up for now.
