    Microsoft doesn't really compete against the likes Linux or Apple or any other operating system on computers.

    For years Microsoft has had 90% or more of the market share and the other companies operating systems get to peck at the scraps.
    Every operating system Microsoft makes competes against a older Microsoft operating system.

    I know of no other company that it's number one competitor is it's self.
    If you buy W-7, W-8 or the new W-10 the money goes in one bank account belonging to Microsoft.

    The last time I checked Microsoft has around of 90% of the Office program market.

    DailyTech - Office 2010 to Launch Today, Microsoft Owns 94 Percent of the Market


    What Microsoft is looking for is a bigger share of the mobile market which is somewhere under 20% the last I looked.
    Now if Microsoft can come with a operating system that can be shared across all platforms, BINGO they found the pile of gold they want.

    Microsoft is still the big dog when it comes to the server market with Enterprise but they do have some competition.

    Just think of it.
    A operating system, office product and a App store across enterprise, small business, home users and all the various mobile devices. In my opinion that is exactly what Microsoft is trying to do.

    We could wait for the Russians and or the Chinese to spend less time making infection to share with the world and make a new operating system the world will want.

    I will wait for Microsoft to complete W-10 and hope they do a good enough job that I will want to run it along side my W-7 computers.
    Remember folks that you don't have to get rid of W-7 to use W-10. You can have and use both in the U.S.A.
    Those who live in the E.U. might want to check for new laws against having both operating system at the same time.

    Just some rambling thoughts from

    Are you just rambling or you have actually heard about laws talking about the number of OSs on a PC? I have heard about a number of stupid laws in the EU, but nothing like that.

    The E.U. is just a guess on my part.
    They take Microsoft to court for just about everything else; why not W-10.
    I'm guessing but I'm thinking the App Store should get them in court in the E.U.

    They have always known this was going to be a long, slow slog to bring WinRT (Metro) apps to feature parity with Win32 apps, and to eventually have them take over. This is all still part of Plan "A", though maybe it's "A1"
    I think A1 is trademarked - they'll have to change it to A.1 or something to avoid lawsuits

    Though coming from someone who has had three strokes, one major, and two baby/mini (they are still strokes) I want to say this is at present one of the best threads I have yet to read on the Nine/Ten's Forums. Other then myself and a couple others you have presented your cases/debates in a well thought out manor. Thus with that I thank for the information you have put forward. The sad thing for me is most of this will be forgotten within the next couple of hours. When one is left with only about 45% of their brain one looses the capability retain a good deal of what they read. Another sad thing is the amount of time it took me to write and edit just this simple little paragraph. . .Thank you all. . .

    I try to remember plan (A) W-8xxx was under old management and plan (B) W-10 is under new management.

    Hopefully a product will come out under new management that more people will like and buy.
