Instead of doing these radical changes to draw in the phone people (whom were never interested in the first damn place) do you think if Microsoft had stuck to the XP format but with improved security and compatibility (as reasonable as possible) instead of trying to be an always online phone company the Windows scene would be a lot better and more companies would write software directly?
We wouldn't be stuck with Steam and instead have real stores that sell stuff due to more demand but when Windows decided 'Me too' to be a phone many companies gave up and now all you see for sale is Antivirus software type stuff. It's too bad Steam type stores is all there is.
Microsoft Virtual PC was actually starting to get good if you knew how to do it properly but they dropped it for Hyper V which was awful with no sound or any drivers,etc to properly play anything and if it weren't for PCEM to save the say I'd be f'ked. I feel Microsoft would've been real close to an official PCEM type emulator which accurately does the cycles of the machine it's emulating.
