are YOU serious? docs is a mediocre set of web apps which are outmatched by office online web apps, AND google has NO match for the big native experiences you get with the full suit of native apps...

sadly if they added one thing to this story, they would have a winner: "windows first".

but the problem is now that iOS/Android treat their customers the best, while windows treats them...

I think the one that I hate the most is the multi desktop transition animation. it is so jarring and long that it kills my productivity. If there is a way via a reg hack to JUST disable that one,...

why would an SP4 be ridiculous? the new broadwell chip would fit in there and give lower temps and higher perf, and nicer battery life times.

it would be ridiculous not to!!!!

Wednesday, October 22, 2014 - 10:56

the animations are bad. really bad.

ha ha, don't get used to it, if Nadella's plans are any indication, the future for microsoft products on windows looks bleak at best, with office for windows 8 being scheduled to 2015, and office...

"build services that are first class solutions for all customers"

ahem, no you don't, in particular, the more closely one aligns to microsoft, the worse it gets. Get their OS and most of...

it's too bad that they don't apply this "common sense" logic to windows phone. I makes me LOL when I open windows phone and the text is so HUGE on a 1080p screen that doesn't fit...because you...

Monday, October 13, 2014 - 14:15

It sounds like great news, too bad however the rest of microsoft isn't really on board with the platform team. Nadella's "everything but windows first" strategy is pushing people away towards the...

"mobile first, windows last" isn't really the point here, the point is that windows phone and windows 8/10 still lack a keyboard API to allow these apps to be made.

Clearly this speaks to...

Thursday, October 9, 2014 - 11:46

I'd love to hear you explain why they shipped the mac first. With the iphone you argue Satya is a "realist" so somehow that means giving the slap in the face to windows users makes some...

Thursday, October 9, 2014 - 11:20

great tip. thanks.

Thursday, October 9, 2014 - 11:18

too bad they don't make the same statement about their platform which often doesn't get apps at all, like office sway...etc. It's like saying: "buy our hardware with confidence and hope we bother...

Wednesday, October 8, 2014 - 10:52

well, if microsoft can't support it's own platforms as first class citizens, why would anybody trust their products? sway will flop no doubt, and longer term, windows relevancy within microsoft...

welcome to the "immersive app". That pit of hell lie where you were so immersed in the app that the commands didn't matter. off course you're immersed in hell when this happens.

Tuesday, October 7, 2014 - 13:07

it has been working since the last release.

Tuesday, October 7, 2014 - 13:06

In windows 10 there is no difference so there is no need to think any longer about modern vs win32. The reason you won't see it running in the modern environment besides the horrible API...

Tuesday, October 7, 2014 - 13:04

correct. causal and professional don't mix.

Tuesday, October 7, 2014 - 10:21

that sidebar UI is really going to hunt them. I don't see a way to fix it other than re-doing it as a pop up and even so, most developers foolish enough to follow this rat hole of settings...

Monday, October 6, 2014 - 11:00

why did you install the technical preview on your touch device? they told you this was for non touch devices silly. you ignored their advise and now you have to tell yourself: read the article....

Thursday, October 2, 2014 - 13:16

if I can use any BT keyboard why does this need an OS switch? and btw, if they don't even have enough fait in their own products to support their own phone, why would I every use anything they...

all nice updates it seems.

bing powers maps, cortana, analytics and a ton of services. bing is the brains for the MS data aggregation cloud and no doubt provides the data for every single one of MSN's articles. So no, bing...

Tuesday, September 30, 2014 - 08:39

and now MSN goes to the "uninstall" bin in all my PCs tablets and phones as I want absolutely nothing to do with the "yahoo" of the 90s that is MSN.

Tuesday, September 30, 2014 - 07:45

MSFT is slow at everything. even opening store lol. what a joke of a company.

Tuesday, September 30, 2014 - 06:59

adobe needs to ditch the bloated browser out the window, and let us stream the apps like office does, without a bloated browser from google.

Thursday, September 25, 2014 - 10:25

well, so in the mobile first world of mr Nadella, do maps don't count? because being hostage to Nokia and bing maps being the "RC cola" of maping services, are location services not enough mobile...

Wednesday, September 24, 2014 - 14:36

and samsung is ditching the chromebook in europe too which basically torpedoes chrome OS permanently.

Tuesday, September 23, 2014 - 13:24

very well said, although here is the thing: what makes you special is the fact you actually know about windows and MSFT stuff. There are a billion apple experts out there who trash MSFT all day....

Tuesday, September 23, 2014 - 13:17

they are just copying google, who last I checked was doing the same thing.
