quote: MS mistake was not realizing the potential of what they had..
quote: Wait Microsoft is not visionary? Developing an ecosystem and interface that scales from phone and tablet up to large screen and table top surfaces all with the programming tools (often given for free) to back it up.What does android have? A race to have more cores in every phone so we don’t have to reboot them every day? Handsets with abandoned versions of the OS.What does iOS have for vision? A skeuomorphic leather calendar and the same app grid we’ve had from the beginning.Look at user comments. Microsoft brings a new vision of the interface and people complain. It’s too hard to learn and at the same time looks like a child’s toy. They can’t win because apparently the consumer is too lazy to invest 20 minutes in learning a new interface and at the same time far less developed than their own children.
