The idea has been presented way before Canonical said it. By me and everyone who has seen a Communicator or one of the old Windows tablets.Sounds like a CC off of the Ubuntu phone. Nice. But someone else's idea.
Dude, it's been 15 years since MS got smacked down by Clinton in 2000 and the tech bubble burst. They still act the dog that got kicked, broke its back, but survives wimpering trying to please its owner.Sounds interesting.
If anyone can ah heck this up, it's MS.
Dude, seriously, check out this question/thread titled "Significant new inventions in computing since 1980" by Alan Kay (yes, THE Alan Kay):Sounds like a CC off of the Ubuntu phone. Nice. But someone else's idea.
More and more Universal apps are hitting the Store already, and they've just made it easier than ever to convert Win32 .NET software as well as iOS and Android projects into Universal Apps. The Store is going to explode with them. They'll run on a desktop in windows (not just full screen), on a tablet, phone, etc.3) No x86 apps. All windows phones to this point have run on SnapDragon processors, and as good as those are becoming there isn't a SD chip on earth that can properly emulate x86 in real time. This means only the continuum sensitive ARM apps will work. I am sure this will expand with time, but right now this is pretty much just the new Office and a handfull of 'universal apps'... mostly made by Microsoft.
