Why? Let's say there is an executive who would like to develop this activity and another executive who doesn't like the first one for some reason and do all the politics he can to slow down the...

Microsoft gets what it deserves: having played with Windows Phone first adopters and dropped them 18 monthes after (the surprise switch from wp7 to wp8) it generated distrust.
No surprise if...

Paul,
How can you, a technologist, an enthousiast, propose to go back in time? You sound like these AS/400 guys who want to bring back their old brand, or these Apple Newton fans who still...

A fatal dead-end
Paul, we have to admit it (as we do it with some pain and regrets): Windows is stuck in a dead-end that can be fatal to it.
Today I went to the phone store to renew...

MINISTRY OF ENDPOINT COMPUTING

Microsoft has been confiscated by few people who have demonstrated month after month how narrow-minded they are. All the good elements have escaped. Only...

Wordperfect
Continuing to play this game, the once king of the world combination Windows+Office can become a new DOS+Wordperfect. Mobility and simplicity are now the key needs for most of us...

People want apps but there is no more developpers at MS. They all quitted. And there is no ready to buy Metro app on the market...

A goood boy

I have been a good boy for years, a good MS boy I mean. I bought an LG E900 with wp7 2 years ago and waited 3 monthes until I met another WP in someone else's hand. I waited,...

Hi Paul
I iron my shirts every sunday listening to your podcast, but frankly, you are going too far. This start screen is simply an ugly tactile mask on windows face, and the quicker it will...

Amazing clip that shows how deep is the Microsoft malaise. Microsoft feels so guilty inside that they do not dare to defend themselves and be positive about their products.
The only public...

Hello Paul, you are right to calm the game.
But the real problem is a trust problem, and when you say "it's Windows, folks", it does not sound as evident as in the past.
It is not "...

They promised 7.8 to let you wait peacefully until now. Now they let you wait again because they hope you are so faithful to Microsoft that you will order a flagship phone with WP8. But what if...

I have been waiting for two years, now! The next big think is always for the next year, never for now. It is like a disneyland attraction: they say you have to wait 60 minutes and when you reach...

It is really an "annus horribilis" for Microsoft. Everything is going wrong. The relationship with faithful customers (like me) is broken. Their PC system is wrong, same for tablets and phones. We...

As a french wp7 user I am used to feel frustrated (if not something else) when I read articles about features I will never see here.
WP7 stands for "wait permit" on this side of the Atlantic...

I have been a MS fan for 20 years, so it is hard for me to switch on Apple ecosystem. So I will live on a mixted environment made of Android mobile devices, Windows PCs and a not too expensive...

Hi,
Here is France, strictly nobody in the enterprise environment feels concerned by Windows 8. Either the end-user, the IT managers, or the executives consider it as a double-head monster...

Virus of self-destruction.
It is fascinating to see how virulent can be the virus of self destruction once it is released in an organism.
Before the great disasters of this fall,...

A family affair.
This is an example of how the "all-windows" strategy led by MS management created a void around the system itself. This kind of interoperability is just about infrastructure...

Friday, November 16, 2012 - 4:26pm

Great article Paul. Your eloquence reaches summits in these troubled times. For 20 years we (the Community) were believing that there was a kind of common sense at the head of Microsoft, like a...

We will remember this fall 2012:
First Sandy, and then the end of Windows.
Good bye beloved OS, I spent nights and months with you, but my next phone won't be a Windows...

A Nuclear Winter

Frankly, somebody has to pay for the mess that has been put inside Windows, and more widely, inside Microsoft.
Microsoft always had detractors, but also had a huge...
