    Brad, I see that your Surface Book has been replaced by the Go as your executive module (or whatever you call it) in recent FRD 'casts. Is that working out OK? Do you ever wish for a larger screen?

    My prediction is, despite the contrary statements from Microsoft, that Windows will eventually get a new version name and that it might even happen before Windows 10 can reach a billion.

      In reply to skane2600:

      As Windows 10 uptake has remained stalled ever since the forced conversions - and coercions - from 7 and 8.1, I've suspected they'll drop the number and just call it Windows, in attempt to escape the stink once again like they thought they did when rebranding 8.2 as 10.

      But some things don't wash off in the shower, and continually antagonizing longtime Windows users with the hostile policies in 10 will not be forgotten.

    When one asks: Can Windows 10 reach a billion: is one talking devices or users? And if one is talking about the numbr of devices which ones are you including?

    Is there a 4k version of the desktop background that Brad has behind him?

    :)))) A billion of what? forced users? Windows 10 FAILED at everything, no matter how much MS is trying to hide it or how much fanboys say otherwise: apps, UI, tablet UI and UX, crappy updates, mediocre quality.
