    I am still focused on the desktop apps than I am the cloud ones, but I like seeing the improvement.

    Hi folks

    can't really see what's wrong with current version -- sometimes changes just add "features" which 99% of users don't need or want.

    A desktop experience is 100% different from making the whole thing look like it's running on a mobile phone !! - I often use large screens (up to 4 concurrently) so don't need to run as if I'm on a small tablet or a mobile.

    Plus all the touch screens on the planet don't make anything easier than an old classical mouse for cut and pasting large chunks of text / bits of spreadsheets / other data from one application to another.

    By all means "beatify" the interface but don't take away menus etc. and continue to allow the apps to run on conventional screens in windowed mode.

    Plus I utterly loathe this "new fangled thing" of making devices and applications voice controllable -- can you really think of a more idiotic experience of trying to do something with 5 / 6 different people yelling at their computers / TV's / devices.

    It's got so bad that the other day I was coming back to UK via Eurostar train from Brussels to go to Stanstead Airport and in the London termainal at St Pancras station there was a chappie giving out in a large voice his pin number / security code to some voice activated banking service. I went up to him and said -- thanks for that info -- the Russian Mafia probably have it now and will empty your account !!!! and wandered off -- wonder what the guy did -- hope he changed his codes and certainly his Bank.

    Cheers

    Might of been a scam because the bank I am with certainly does not ask for your pin or security questions. with mine I have to go on line. answer 3 questions that I set up the account with then they text you another pin which when you call them you have to say the number and then they ask you once you are talking to them another answer that only you and they know when they sent the number to contact them on. So yes he was very stupid
