    Thanks Microsoft!

    Wonder if Win 10 overall will also eventually exp same fate. Doesn't seem like there are many good decisions being made there. If G or someone comes out with a viable OS...

    Mine works with little glitches, but it supports so little apps. My simple low end Samsung luna pro is an incredible device compared to the windows phone. And in any case, what do they have, .0005% market share. They create a one concept OS meant to work on all devices meaning really that it is especially capable/designed for small form factor... but then completely botch the small form mobile phone market.. the most important mobile devices there are. I think the "we were late to the party" is just an excuse. Anyway, rip windows phone.

    Yeah, they could have just tried to redesign the UI or something...not ditch Windows Phone completely. Overall the mobile OS runs very well. And there is certainly nothing wrong with the hardware. It also takes a lot of time to get strong and big chunk of the mobile market share when there are strong competitors.

    Picture it.......still using it myself, old folks prefer old school ways......LOL
    Hi Kipper, yes I used Picture it a lot when I used to use another program that should be on the list, Microsoft Front Page. I still have Picture it Express 7.0 but it won't install on an X64 system. Front Page won't install either, but Microsoft Image Composer still will. That's another missing program.

    Hi Steve

    Forgot about Front Page.....I used it a good deal of the time back in the day also.....I really do need to spend some time with a couple of the newer image editors and wean myself off of Picture It.........This old dog just has a hard time with new tricks......LOL

    I used Front Page. Also the Windows essentials live stuff and that email program - windows live mail - which was my favorite. Then they put a ridiculously unintuitive ribbon style menu, broke some things and never fixed them and then... then I found Thunderbird. I do like that the email notifications in Win 10 work well.

    @kipper, I used front Page98 and it came with a program called Image Composer which I used to use a lot. It's about all from that disk that will still install on Windows 10. It also had a GIF animator as well.

    A favourite of mine, I still use it to this day (works fine in 10). This Wikipedia article includes, under References, a link to the Internet Archive Wayback Machine which has a copy you can download.

    I miss Train Simulator. There is also Paint and Calc, but luckily Winaero took care of that.
    Train? I don't know MS had developed Train Simulator. I miss Flight Simulator. Watching videos on Youtube is really nostalgic for me.

    Forgot it's name now but I'm missing one GPS App that was in W8 on my Lumia 640 until they killed it for W10. MS Maps is not very accurate and with less features.
