    Or, you could say the operating systems for desktop, mobile and Xbox are different but they share a common core and app model. Beyond repeating marketing lines, you understand the concept, the user has a different UI and different capabilities, a different experience.



    Not really. The modern environment is not there. Full screen apps is a core part of Modern UI principles: Simplicity, clean design, content first, immersive chrome-less experience. Many of Modern UI elements are replaced with Windows 95 UI elements. For example the small three dots menu in the window title bar, so difficult to touch in an hybrid or a touch laptop, app switching at the left is replaced with a Windows 95 taskbar, the Windows start screen is replaced with start menu (I know you can use a setting to change it, but most people never mess with obscure settings).
    The Modern apps looks awful and alien inside the Windows 95 desktop environment, so when you want a pleasant experience you left the Windows device and switch to a real consumer device.



    Modern UI works well with mouse and keyboard, they could have improved that.
    There are 1.5 billion people using Windows, but the actual usage time of Windows is falling because It's an overkill for most tasks. It's a more enjoyable and productive experience to use a simple device, with a simple UI, for simple tasks. Specially in the consumer market, what's the point of so much useless chrome obstructing the content? What's the point of moving and resizing windows?

    Microsoft is pushing this Windows 95 UI principles to their core products like hybrids and Surface Pro, the products where they have an advantage over Apple and Google. So, the number of people buying devices with the REAL Modern UI experience which is better for most of the daily simple tasks, will be insignificant.

    The final effect is that less and less people will use Windows for their most common computing tasks. Windows is just the boring OS you have to use at work to run legacy apps. That's called irrelevance, and in the long run money follows relevance.
    But that's completely false. Windows 8, WP8, and Xbox already share the same core. And have similar app structures for modern apps.

    Windows 10 is a step beyond that. It is literally the same OS. Just a matter of a UI adjustments. It's like a Responsive website, it's the same website, but the code changes how it's displayed based on form factor.

    You clearly have no idea what you are talking about, so just stop talking.

    1) it's a tech preview, aka beta/unfinished
    2) it's business focused at the moment. you can't have a touch interface on a non touch device(is desktops) it's intuitive. That's why win8 is so divisive. Businesses don't use touch.... They use desktops, and most if not all businesses refuse to upgrade to win8. They should have gone to win7 instead of now panicking with all the older windows versions getting phased out in favor of 8 and above.
    3). Their one windows philosophy means the experience across everything will be consistent. Touch is fine with tablets and phones and even Xbox but they need to bridge the desktop to be more than just win7 with a metro theme. So they're bringing as much of the functionality as they can to desktop without killing the desktop.

    1)The big design decisions and the objectives of the product can't be changed in a few months.

    2)Obviously they're going to push the same UI for in the enterprise and consumer markets for laptops and hybrids. You won't see a Yoga Pro (an hybrid device) with start menu and a beside that the same Yoga Pro with start screen in a retail store.

    The effect of these decisions:
    Laptops with touchscreen don't make sense anymore because the UI is not touch friendly.
    Hybrids are mostly attractive for the enterprise and people that needs legacy Windows software, that's a niche. A 13-inch iPad pro with accessories is better for consumers that don't need the complexity of Windows and occasionally need to do some tasks with mouse and keyboard.
    Nobody buys Windows phones and nobody will buy pure Windows tablets, Android and iOS have obvious advantages.
    So, who's using Windows and why?

    3)The "philosophy" of Windows 8 was to push the platform to consumers through laptops with touchscreens and hybrids.
    In Windows 10 they will use the Windows 95 UI for laptops with touchscreens and hybrids, and nobody buys Windows phones and tablets. The net effects is: Windows becomes a niche product, the platform is dead in the consumer market. In the long term will be also dead in the enterprise market.

    Again, complete bullocks. You need to just stop talking.

    I have a laptop with Touchscreen, and even in "Desktop" mode I use touch for various tasks. It's not keyboard/mouse OR touch.

    When the mouse was invented, people didn't stop using keyboard. They just used mice for things that made more sense using a mouse for. But the keyboard was still being used, and still is to this day. The same goes for touch.

    If MS continued down the path you seem so married to, people would stop buying Microsoft products altogether. If people are frustrated, and hate using Windows on a desktop (Windows 8) why would they even bother buying a Windows product like a tablet or phone? Do you really think taking Sinofsky's approach that burned them in the first place is going to improve their market position? Because that's basically what you are saying. Is that the only way to get people to use touch is to shove it in their face and force them to use it even when it doesn't make sense for their use case.

    You're borderline delusional if you really think that's the way they should continue.

    Do you understand English and what every one else is trying to tell you.

    let me give you a run down on how MS does things ...

    1) Different people / groups work on different parts of the OS separately i.e. people working on the new Explorer UI, icons and Modern UI work on that part with a different build of windows which can be newer or older.
    2) builds can be compiled daily to weekly to monthly ...
    3) its highly likely that there are far newer builds internally in MS with improved touch, Store, New UI elements (notification center and cortana) and modern 2.0 UI /App model.
    4) designing an OS that throws touch out the window when most laptops have touch makes absolutely no sense why would MS have adobe fix there app for HDPI screens and make the Adobe creative suite touch friendly if Windows is going to abandon touch ??? it makes no sense.
    5) You keep comparing Windows to IOS and Android they are different categories of OS.. you cannot edit video or photos professionally on a tablet no is it ideal to do documents, power points, coding/web development on a tablet or mobile phone OS.

    Android and IOS are more for leisure and entertainment while still allowing some level of productivity its not the same as OS X or Windows.

    You just sound like a kid that needs to rant ... your arguments as to why windows should change to your vision are impuissant at best and unsubstantial.

    MS has thousands of workers i don't know how much is on the windows team but the Windows phone team is now merged with windows so more hands to code and develop as well as spot bugs so in a view months alot can change. i would know i can code apps alot can change in a few days, weeks and months if you have ever built and app or game or done general coding.

    As said before you got all your answers and this thread (you) are getting out of hand .... i really hope the moderator i notified rectifies this thread.

    I agree, I was expecting new arguments, but I don't see anything new in the last pages. To answer your post I would need to repeat the same things.

    The conclusion is the same. Windows 10 is capitulation. I don't recommend buying Windows devices or developing for this platform. Microsoft is done in the consumer market.

    The fact that you are making that judgement from the Windows 10 Technical Preview is flat out preposterous.

    So what you're saying is Windows on a phone or tablet is completely dead because MS enhanced the desktop experience for DESKTOP USERS. Do you realize how ridiculous that even sounds?

    At this point, it's self evident that you are delusional.

    Hmm, evidently OP hasn't discovered the ability to switch back to the Start Screen in the preview.

    Yes OP, it's a preview i.e. not even beta. This means that it's subject to change before release.

    This thread is going around and around in circles and has all but lost its use to the community in general.

    If you don't have anything valuable to contribute to any thread and your reply serves to continue an argument or respond to someone else provoking you, move along and don't reply.

    • Be understanding and patient. You may be a power user or developer, but the person youre talking to on the other end may be a complete newbie. Be patient, and provide all details possible if youre posting about a problem (descriptive thread title always helps).

    • Be a pro. Dont get into arguments over dumb things. If someone responds in a poor or rude fashion, ignore it. If you notice a pattern of rude or poor behavior from a particular member, report them to our moderators. If you dont have anything nice to say, dont say anything at all. In a nutshell, think before you post.

    • Be attentive and helpful. Answer questions in a timely manner when you can, and provide thoughts and suggestions that might lead to the solution of a members problem.


    Compliance with these basic guidelines should see you sailing in smooth waters for years to come at Mobile Nations. Youll make friends, gain knowledge, and become wealthy beyond your wildest dreams (OK, maybe not that last point).[/tip]
