  • Microsoft Investors Need To Be Skeptical About Windows 9 [View article]
    You say:

    The essence of this whole article is "Windows 9 isn't out but it will be inferior to Yosemite, also not out". The support for this statement is a link to a far from impartial article praising the list of mainly visual tweaks that weren't even available for preview? IMO a stronger argument is needed for such a conclusion.

    False.

    The essence of the article is that Microsoft are busy "fixing" a mistake and their competitors don't have that burden. Thats a fact.

    As a result, their competitors seem to be doing more creative and forward looking things.

    Absolutely, a lot of this is all speculation.

    LOL at the lack of insight statement.

    I know precisely what Threshold is meant to be and I would be cautious not to engage too deeply into marketing spin.

    You say:

    Threshold will finally bridge the mobile and PC OS gap once and for all and Microsoft will be the first company to accomplish this (Innovation). The potential in this lies in app development. Allowing a developer to only develop once and simultaneously release into to markets has HUGE interest.

    I say:

    The reality is that it will probably make it EASIER to develop for multiple platforms but there will still be a lot of work required to make apps scale and work across multiple device platforms. Be wary of marketing.

    Based on the timing and the rolling back of a lot of features, it's hard to come to the conclusion that Windows 9 is a natural evolution of Windows 8.

    Can you send a call from your Lumia to your Surface?

    My blog http://bit.ly/1oygttO has over 8600 articles on Windows written over the past 5 years.

    I know more than I care to about Microsoft's strategies (or lack thereof at times).

    One big point about the CEO with the Surface setup. The company probably paid for it so when that's the case, who gives a sh*t? Thats the mindset.

    When consumers have to shell out their own cash.....

    It's an interesting point but it's just internal "funny" money and really doesn't affect the larger problem.

    They're not priced appropriately.
