    Wild speculation, but do you think with MS developing a speciality Android phone they may take the opportunity to put out a regular android handset if the Duo (or Neo - I get the two names confused) is not a complete failure? It could be the equivalent of the surface laptop.

    With the addition of Skype integration, do you think that BWW will be taking another stab at using Teams?

    Hi Brad, hope everyone is healthy!


    2 questions about Xbox Series X


    1 - I saw the DigitalFoundry video about the parts of the console and looked to me very easy to mount and unmount the console, do you think MS will do something similar as we saw with Surface Hub 2X to be able to upgrade eventually the internal components?


    2 - Do you think will be possible to use Bluetooth headphones with Series X, in case not why they don’t add this since making a lot of sense IMHO?

    Brad,


    It's clear that the full advantage of the velocity API and SSD will virtually require fully developing games around it's capabilities. But if you do that, how will those games work on older Xbox's?


    Is Microsoft first party studios making two different versions of their games? One to use the SSD and one to not? Wouldn't development of Series X games be held back in this way? Most third party devs will not do this, and design their games to work well from slower hard drives.


    Futhermore, what happens when you take Halo Infinity on our external hard drive and move it from your X1X to Series X? Does it upgrade it to an SSD only version? There are a lot of weird scenarios this Velocity SSD stuff brings up.

    Given the need for many to work from home, what equipment do you use for video switching between feeds? Is your setup appropriate for remote meeting presentations?

    Hi Brad,


    We haven't heard about Lockhart this week which is weird cuz its GDC week and I feel like Lockhart is going to be an important asset to Xbox this generation and yet there is still no info at all about it. It hasn't even been in leaks that have accurately reported the Series X specs. What do you think is going on with it?


    Also my name is pronounced In-djo-mar ?

    Where's 2004? My workplace has been heavily focussing on Docker over the last couple of years (we're a small web-dev company) so WSL2 and Docker go a long way to allowing us to move development to home PCs (most devs only have Windows 10 Home at home). This has been particularly important with the recent Covid thing. Our only problem with rolling out procedures is that we're relying on the old MobyVM tech until 2004 release, but there's just no info about when we can start using WSL2 on Windows 10 Home without everyone having to jump on Insiders. Until then it's use *really* slow SMB mounts for project files or go full insane with some sort of Linux (which some of our devs have already done).

    Looks like a was a little late in submitting my question last week ?, so will post them again but with some follow ups


    are the new intel chips on the Neo, Intel's answer to ARM? They seem to follow the same big.LITTLE architecture that ARM uses. What happens to Windows on ARM if these intel chips deliver similar performance and battery life.


    A few questions related to Xbox and xCloud


    [LAST WEEK QUESTION]

    Currently xCloud consists of Xbox One S motherboards in a server blade. Stadia and Nvidia use traditional blades with CPU and GPUs. Will the future of xCloud start using Xbox Series X motherboards or will they use traditional PC hardware?


    [FOLLOW UP]

    After the Series X reveals, it's shown the motherboard is split into I/O and compute boards. Is that a design choice to make it easier to put Series X Compute into server blades, where part of the board isn't necessary.


    Secondly, could this be an additional manufacturing advantage / cost saving measure for when they bring out lockhart or a mid gen refresh as on the process lines, they only have to build the compute motherboards.


    Final questions was the the streaming only console cancelled?

    Hi Brad, Have you heard about when Microsoft plans to officially launch xCloud? Will it coincide with Series X launch?
