    Hello there to my fellow windows fan and phone users. From what so far we have been reading and recently the mini-aka updated labelled as creators update for windows 10 mobile, do we think it is time Windows 10 mobile became open source?

    Clearly, the OS is in the maintenance mode and Microsoft isn't showing any plans of continuous development (adding new features) unlikes it's desktop counterpart. Speaking as as a windows fan and windows developer, am of the opinion the OS becomes open source and let the developers community handle, similar to what Google did with it's Android Mobile OS.

    I would really like to know what my fellow windows fans and the developers think of this idea.

    --thanks

    You know that making W10M open source would be (almost) the same as making W10 open source, right? And that this could never ever happen (because of a lot of reasons)

    Nope don't think its maintenaince mode, and don't think it should be open sourced. Do think it has, and will get feature updates.

    This.

    The idea of that sounds awful to me. I'm clearly against it.

    Android may be open-source, but Google is still clearly committed to improving it and continues to do so.

    There is no way W10M will be competitive as an open-source pet project. See LuneOS.
