Whatever they do, I hope they don't abandon it like how they did with RT, as the whole Windows RT with Metro UI never got an update to Windows 10........
UWP is the problem, less features than traditional x86 programs, slow loading and the ridiculous haphazard ui. They just seem to randomly throw menus all over the place.
Q8PEACE, 30 Jan 2017be ready microsoft to die google are coming for you thanks to your metro 10 ugly uiMetro UI is not ugly. But a lot of apps create ugly icons no doubt. That's why I prefer the mobile version where it uses the transparent tile UI. Project neon will be a major UI change and from what I have seen it will be gorgeous.
Anonymous, 30 Jan 2017Not surprised to see Microsoft react. Because MS has always reacted rather than acted. Been a ... moreIt has always been a leader but would poorly implement. Look at how long before iPad they had tablets. It didn't take off. Why? because it was so complex that no average user in the right mind would know how to use it. And of course pricey as hell.
Now they started the whole 2-in-1 revolution. The idea of the OS that runs across different input/output mediums.
They are just slow at implementing things and always get beat to the punch. They are also bad with hiding complexity from users.
Anyways, this is simply going to be a cheaper version of Windows RT. This is nothing new. Not following Google at all. If anything Google followed windows.
Not surprised to see Microsoft react. Because MS has always reacted rather than acted. Been a follower rather than a leader. If not for heat from Google then MS would still be resting on its laurels guarding its portfolio of locally installed Word, Excel and IE6. And those pesky BSODs would still be the breaking news of the day.
So this is a product *separate* from Windows for ARM? Complications, complications...
