Live tiles first appeared in October 2012, when Microsoft officially introduced the new Windows 8, and since then they have received several rounds of improvements which has made it very clear that Redmond has no intention to dump them and go back to the traditional Windows approach.
Things have changed since then, however, and even though Microsoft brought back the Start menu, it found a way to actually mix the original design with the new live tiles, thus making sure that this new modern concept lives on despite the return of traditional Windows features.
And there’s information that live tiles will continue to be a key feature in future Windows versions, not only on the desktop, but also on smartphones and tablets.

Limited or metered internet access might be the only people that might not use live titles
Otherwise they are not much different than feeds or gadgets something that continually updates,
Low powered systems might also have an issue on startup initially loading them :/
Something easily forgotten or taken for granted not everyone is on high speed internet some people might be on dialup
