    So your argument is that they are already sort of blocking stuff now, so why not let them potentially block even more? This is a terrible editorial.

    good, only way to reduce these pay to win is for people to vote with their feet and not buy these games.

    Removing existing features from our purchased copies of Windows only so they can use them to sell a more expensive version is really lame. Is this the future of Windows as a Service?

    It hardly does anything new. One of the best inventions of 2017? Christ on a bike.

    People need to upgrade their PCs. Windows 10 is better, period, and it's a free upgrade for anybody with a legitimate copy of Windows 7. It's insane how long people expect Microsoft to continue patching old software just because they don't want to upgrade. Windows is becoming the Debian Linux of the proprietary software world because people just won't let old versions die out of a fear of change and pure paranoia.

    From another perspective they're actually making each other's products better. As long as they give the other a chance to fix the issue before going public, I'm OK with it.

    No doubt a few Neowin members will still argue with Belfiore that W10m is "going strong", the app gap doesn't matter because you can pin websites to the Start screen and that Edge is superior to any app??!??!?

    I've learned in my time that those who claim to not be in it for the money are in it for the money, and those who claim they want to help people actually just want their money. If you're not in it for the money the conversation never comes up. If you're trying to legitimately help people, be it enriching their lives through technology, you'd never think to mention how selfless you are. He's so far up his own ass that he's clueless to what his objectives truly are and is just parroting what he thinks people want to hear. And it's becoming so par for the course that people are for the most part realising that it's all a bunch of bologna. Make your phone and shut up.

    All companies have a set of rules that employees must follow. You don't follow these rules, then there's a good chance you will lose employment.

    I have a perfect solution for all Microsoft problems - Nadella must go away. And never return.

    "What I think is remarkable about the iPhone X is that its functionality is so determined by software." If he had said that same sentence and left out the 'X' it would matter since the concept is exactly what iPhones and smartphones in general has been since day one: that the device is a mini-computer with many potential functionality aspects all determined by the applications they're allowed to run and the creativity of the software developers creating those apps. My God, he literally just said the iPhone X is different because it's capable of doing stuff, seriously, he did. Jony, buddy, you need to get outta Cupertino 'cause your brain is suffering from iRot.

    Sorry Ms but your recent performance and your recent culling of product streams, lets see what you say in 12 months time. I trust nothing out of Redmonds mouths these days, they will be cloud and software only within 36 months, so obvious. The only "hardware" i can see them keeping is Xbox.

    It isn't, at all, and the cascade is having more damage than Microsoft realizes. The original 'App Gap' wasn't about a 3rd platform, rather it was artificially generated by Apple and Google dumping money into specific App and Game companies to stay off of Windows Phone. SnapChat to a lot of major game publishers that had the key hit titles at the time. (Ironically, the games were faster on WP and had more graphical features, but the 'subsidized' money offset any 'showcasing' of the Apps/Games on Windows.) The sad 'effect' of all this, is that a lot of features people enjoy today on both Android and iOS came from features and design concepts of Windows Phone. This 'spark' of different now disappears, and Apple and Google can sail without any major effort. (iOS's multi-tasking model is based on WP, the Copy/Paste UIs, Photo/Content upload caching at the OS level, the Share concepts are ubiquitous and etc. - there are a ton of these examples even Find My Phone that was built in back in 2010 to WP8 Driving Mode that Apple recently and Google is JUST NOW adding to its Pixel lineup.) The additional 'sad' effect, is that Android's OS architecture/model is closer to Win95, being a generation behind even WinXP technologies. If people think the XP era of security and problems were bad, now imagine an even less secure OS and a highly limited application layer, with more users. There is a reason why the security estimates STILL put undetected malware on Android device at an estimated 70%. That alone should scare the hell out of people, and nobody seems to care, which is one of the things Joe B mentioned, as they couldn't get users or developers to care about the important things. WP/WM users, with the exception of the bad betas of WM10, just didn't have hardware issues, Apps closing or crashing or ever needing to restart their device. One of my best friends had WP lock up during an update when she pulled it off the charger, and she didn't know how to hit the Power/Volume Down button, as she had never powered her phone off even using the 'Slide Down to Power Off' - let alone had to do a forced restart - this is after she heavily used the phone for nearly two years. Remember that this level of dependability could have been the 'normal'. Think about this, when you are having to restart Android or iOS to get audio working, or the camera to stop crashing or overheating or general instability or needing 8GB of RAM on a freaking phone just to run messaging Apps smoothly. The Tiles were novel, but not a game changer... However, WP did have important things. The use of the GPU for the entire UI from the beginning was unique and why WP always beat Android on the same hardware or similar hardware by fairly large numbers. (Qualcomm even had to change their performance numbers because of WP could get far more out of the SoCs than Android or their internal stub Linuxes.) The loss of WM will affect everyone adversely. It should have been the metric that would have normalized stability, security, and performance. I know Microsoft has a rather 'inventive' mobile vision that is the next generation, but until it happens, they are losing a lot of good will in key consumer markets. There is also the chance that the 'new mobile concepts' will be ditched, just as the concept that was supposed to be happening now has been put on the back burner, and this timeframe has been too long and is hurting Microsoft as a company.

    So let me get this straight. First some frog that was completely innocuous, is now some hate symbol, just because a bunch of 4chan users made it so. Now, some symbol that has been around since 2001 from WoW is no longer considered PC material, and must be removed at all cost. What is next? How about if some alt-right whatever person decides to use the universal yellow smiley face? Dear God, it would have to be purged!!! What a load of crap. If I were the CEO of Bungie, I would write up something along the lines of: "Get the **** over yourselves. This politically correct bull **** has got to stop!"
