Nah, this couldn’t possibly have anything to do with the fact that most users don’t want their desktop to look and to work like a phone.
Microsoft blames the PC makers. My source cited to me the PC makers’ “inability to deliver,” a damning indictment that I think nicely explains why the firm felt it needed to start making its own PC and device hardware.
It’ll be interesting if Microsoft continues to pursue this already-failing strategy of making all PCs (even workstations) into crap phone-like single-tasking experiences.
If so, in the long run this will be good as it will utterly destroy the dominance of Windows and Office, leading to more space for competing OSes.
