After all, Windows 10 is supposed to be “the last version of Windows”.

 

It’s “Windows as a service”, continually updated and fixed by developers who are listening to Windows users and improving things.

 

That’s the promise, anyway.

 

We’ve been using the Windows 10 Anniversary Update for awhile now, so let’s see what complaints Microsoft has succeeded (and failed) to deliver on.

 

Failure: Windows 10 Still Uses Your Upload Bandwidth to Share Updates Success: Windows Store Apps Are No Longer a Closed Platform

 

Etc

It has been said that time heals all wounds. I don't agree. The wounds remain. Time - the mind, protecting its sanity - covers them with some scar tissue and the pain lessens, but it is never gone. Rose Kennedy

Worst part for me:

 

The TripAdvisor application now appears as a pre-installed tile, and Microsoft is making room in the Start menu for PC manufacturers to pin more bloatware tiles. The Solitaire application still has a subscription fee. Microsoft has also extended other types of advertising, with suggested app ads in the Start menu and full-screen ads for games available through the Windows Store on the lock screen.

 

Because that's what I want on my Start Menu, advertisements.

 

Windows is the only OS I know with compulsory advertisement.

Microsoft keeps saying "Last Version of Windows" but from Microsoft's end of life table you can see Windows 10's end of life is 2025. What happens after 2025? I believe it will be a subscription service.

They'll stop making Windows.

 

 

What!? It could happen!

Indeed, there's no certainty after 2025 that computers will normally be used under the same paradigm as now. Why not Microsoft Holographs? (I still think a lot of people don't notice what "Windows" actually means...)

The future is portable and Windows is miles behind with 2.6% market share on Windows phone. Android is combining desktop and portable OS's into a unified platform. Oh yea, and its free. I would say desktops in 2025 will be a niche market mainly for business and gamers.

+! on Android becoming mainstream and desktops being a niche market in 2025. Look no further than Remix. For the average user why bother purchasing a full blown computer when all you need is a monitor and the Mini. Microsoft's phone market share is in the tank.
