I still can't see what WinHelp32 has to do with rest of 32bit programs and applications. They might not care making 32 bit SW any more but that doesn't mean Windows will not support it.
Rumor is that even Linux is pulling out of 32bit OS but not applications which can also run in 64bit system.
Some applications are JUST NO GOOD for portable devices --of course it probably depends on your definition of a "Portable device".
With say Photoshop for example producing a decent high quality PRO A2 size print for example for a poster / publication / sales pitch / exhibition etc you certainly wouldn't want to even THINK about doing that on any mobile phone. For this type of stuff a decent > 48 inch monitor is still a minimum.
Loads of apps that will never work on a "Portable device".
Of course there's nothing wrong say in connecting a powerful phone to an external huge monitor for processing output - but that really stretches what "a portable device" is - and in any case you don't get enough control with these types of apps on using a touch screen anyway.
Portable devices have their uses but they won't kill other devices for a long time if ever.
I think some people need to get away from thinking computing applications are only about social media, a bit of internet browsing and emails. I don';t do games either but I'm sure some serious gamers wouldn't like to play their serious stuff with a tiny mobile phone / tablet screen.
There is Photoshop Express and other graphic APPs.
My case is probably an exception but of the 5 Win7 PCs that I had planned to Upgrade to Win10, I was only able to upgrade 3. Two of them failed the upgrade, regardless of anything I did.
Of the three upgraded PCs, two have been rolled back to Win7 -- as the strong request of the PC users.
So for me, the actual Win10 Upgrade count is 1, not 5.
I have to wonder, of this 350 Million devices running, what is their distribution in the following categories:
1) New PCs with Win10 preinstalled
2) Older PCs that upgraded to Win10 and are still running it
3) Older PCs that upgraded to Win10 but reverted back to their prior OS(s).
Also, an interesting poll would be to see, now, of all the folks that are still running Win10, how many would have made that choice if the Upgrade price was what it is going to be after this July?
I, for one, would NOT have upgraded if I would have had to pay $120, as I only paid $40 to upgrade to Win8, and that's all I was willing to pay to upgrade to Win10.
