off course you wont be able to install desktop app into mobile phones, maybe what Microsoft will do is to integrate the mobile capability of its whole devices, computers and services into one ecosystem,, like data, contacts, etc, but definitely not applications for which desktops have different specs than any windows phone.......... common sen_e.....
There will be only METRO, no classic desktop interface.
Is is just MS' version of Apple's Continuity. The phone is not going to run the full Windows OS. The OS itself is 15~20GB
I wish that the interface remains the same. If they change this excellent desing and simplicity, it wont be good anymore. As for os itself..the best one at the market. You can call your phone a phone and use it fast and simple. Unlike other two.
Anonymous, 14 Nov 2014Why would he need to root his phone?, people root their phone because their phone is slow and ... morePeople root their phones not just because of that but more like they wish go beyond the normal customization. Besides being fast you can't even change your home screen so every OS has its pros and cons.
Well iam going to,buy a new Lumia ny than I love that Ms branding.

Most likely still same crappy tile in... moreStill better than the widgets any other OS uses, at least WP does it differently.
Good news by the way, hope the older models like the 920 and 820 will be able to handle the OS smoothly as we are used to from WP phones.
Thank you Microsoft
Are you raedy for Wp8.2, misleadingly called Windows 10?
That probably means it won't be a meaningful overhaul

Anonymous, 14 Nov 2014Nice-nice, but WTF is Windows 10. Will this be the new name of Windows Phone, or will it be a ... moreIt would apparently be the same logic between WP8 and W8, what they will do is ditch the P and just use the same name. Since I dont believe they would install full fleged desktop OS in mobile device.
Dovice, 14 Nov 2014Both Apple and Google have blown their opportunity to create a cross device OS. The difference... moreWhats being horrible in using OS X and iOS? And by the way their difference would really be huge since desktop and mobile device have their different purpose usage. Now I dont think the full windows desktop OS would be installed in WPhones rather a stripped down version with just the same name used. Give me the benefits of being in windows cross platform that iOS/OS X and Android/ChromeOS cant do.
Ahh..loved this news. Hope all problems, shortcomings in lumia phone 730 will be resolved (related to windows phone ecosystem).

Will this be the new name of Windows Phone, or will it be a ... moreYep, probablt only metro apps will work which is a fail and won't be any improvement over the current closed/locked/limited windows phone. No external apps, no reasonable customizations. Only multitasking will be new.
Well, no, thanks.
