    MS's '1 billion devices' goal has 73% of businesses planning to deploy


    One billion. Without context, the number still manages to stand alone as impressively massive. However, in regards to Microsoft, the number stands as a reminder of a lofty promise towards a seemingly daunting accomplishment. This year, at Microsoft’s annual Build conference, the company took to stage and attempted to rally Windows developers behind its latest Windows offering. Presenter after presenter celebrated the various new features and additions the new OS would include to make developers lives more convenient. Windows 10 was advocated to developers for its enhancements in security, stability, platform flexibility and compatibility, reduced digital footprint, and its return of user-friendly UI elements, to name a few features. While many of the features discussed at //Build/ this year are welcomed refinements, it may have been Microsoft’s goal of” Windows 10 running on one billion devices in the next few years,” that grabbed most people’s attention.

    I hope they succeed. I got a Windows phone to give it a spin after Android and I love what they have going on with it and the integration with my laptop (formerly linux & google for me). From what I've seen Windows 10 may be the silver bullet. Time will tell though, I'm sold on it that much is certain.

    I've been checking out Windows phones because I'm thinking of switching from Android to Windows When my plan runs out in October. So far I'm very disappointed. There is a very limited selection of phones available through my carrier and a few of the apps I use on my Android phone are not available for Windows. I hope this changes by the end of October.

    Hi there

    I've moaned often about this -- Windows Phone OS is great but Oh dear -- The phones remind me of the old "East European Blockhouse" or "Stalinist Brutalist " type of architecture. Also Windows phones are missing some sort of standard type apps -- Ms could fix some of this for example by refusing to do ANY transactions with Banks that don't have a Windows Banking mobile app.

    Ms could also get together with some of the handset manufacturers. I'm sure Samsung could be interested as they've probably saturated their own market for Android stuff.

    Cheers
