    Why not? For instance with Windows 10 native calculator, set it to Programmer mode:

    Nice calculator. There is an old saying going something like you can lead a donkey to water but you can't make it drink. I know people that have an expensive new computer on their desk with a 20 year of calculator next to it that they prefer to use. A few more months and they will be retired.

    Seems to me and the rest of the users out there that you are out on a limb.

    Windows 8.1 market share grows, Windows 7 slips, Windows 10 lurks • The Register
    Agree. I use a desktop to work. I don't touch it. Most people don't and the failure of Windows 8 has shown that.

    Windows 8.1 here on all 4 of my home computers. They'll all be Windows 10 early next month.

    All I know is I appreciate the same experience and APP on my phone, tablet and pc. This is why i'm here and testing the os on all three form factors. If you're not going to help with this experience, then what ARE you doing?

    Those that don't or can't grasp this concept.. I feel for you. I really do. Do as you wish to break the innovation MS has worked years towards and stifle it more with your thoughts and reservations. This is the reason it is in this state and not further along.

    No complaints about Windows 8.1. My system has been running nicely since its release. I am a Windows Insider and have installed all builds up to 10162. With the release of RTM looming and the progress being made with the builds, I thought I'd do a test run of upgrading my Windows 8.1 drive with build 10162. As I am a great believer in backups, I cloned my drive and proceeded with the upgrade today using an ISO (from Microsoft).
    Happy to report that all went well with all of my installed programs in tact. Have not run into any issues but if they do occur I'll report back.

    Y'know, Eminent, there's a little thing called financial stability that most of us attempt to achieve. Not only that, but a large percentage of Ten Forums denizens are retired and/or on fixed income! Windows phone is much more expensive than the Android smart phone I use; as well, the Surface tablet is very much more expensive than the $169.00 11.6" RCA tablet I got at Walmart. Except for my 17" HP laptop which replaced a cratered one and which cost less than $500.00, and this desktop, which also cost less than $500.00, the rest of my equipment is more than five years old.

    So, you can look down your nose at me for not testing on Windows phone or Surface if you want to, but I live within my means. Sorry I can't live up to your requirements . . . nope, I'm not sorry at all . . .

    Because, you know what!? I'm in some very good company with a lot of nice people here who aren't any more affluent than I am, but who test with what they have. I haven't seen a one of them say, "Oh, woe is me, I can't afford to buy a Windows phone or a Surface, so I must not be a very good tester." Nor have I seen anyone else say (paraphrased), " If you don't test using a Windows phone and Surface, you're stifling Microsoft's innovation; thus, you are not a very good tester."

    Sorry, folks, but this one hit a very sensitive nerve for me.

    No reason to attack me or the products I use.

    You CAN buy a low cost Windows Phone and tablet. The benefits are still there. Your argument for cost does not take away from the universal development of 10 on everything.
