Windows 10 S

3 posts in this topic

So, this is the Windows 10 Cloud that was hinted at on the insider previews..

 

Anyone actually think it's a good idea?

I'm really not a fan of having, multiple versions of an OS, it complicates things for the end user.

Windows Sterile, as I think I'll call it, is just another attempt by MSFT to imprison users in an Apple-like ecosystem. (The new laptop is the same from a hardware perspective, providing an admittedly lovely but expensive machine).

As usual all the supposed customer benefits are dressed up as pseudo-advantages e.g. security via limitation to Store apps ... only needs a simple switch, not a whole new OS.

The usual suspects are all saying its the way to go: we need to convert all applications to UWP and install them via the Windows Store.

I'm happy with that providing:

- MSFT pays for the application porting effort, to be recovered if the platform takes off

- MSFT takes a very small cut of developer's revenues (say 0.1% with a limit)

- I get 6 free licenses for the 6 copies of MS Office I own

Should be done before the next BUILD conference, right?
