    Hey Guys,

    Is it too early to introduce Cellular PCs? The Surface Book 2 and Surface PRO 5 could be Cellular PCs.

    Paul / Brad, what does MS say when you ask them about MS' consumption services (Groove/Movies) on other platforms? No reply? No comment?

      In reply to Bart:

      Not unlikely Netflix subscribers, HBO subscribers through their cable/satelite TV providers, and other subscription media providers outnumber Movies & TV so overwhelmingly that MSFT sees no economic point to making Movies & TV more broadly available. In short, Movies & TV is for chumps.

      I don't use online music services, so I have no idea how Groove measures up, but I suspect that's it's a distant 6th place at best, so also drain down which MSFT would prefer to minimize its investment.

    I think what what the viewer said about being half baked is that are certain parts of the system that seam raw and other parts are actually raw. This regardless of other other parts look and are in fact well cooked. Now in the enterprise environment people are payed to get the job done with it, while in their personal lives aren't. So in their personal lives given the option people tend not to eat undercooked if not raw stuff. This is not just in Windows 10, For instance the iPad Pro wasn't really a huge success yet, neither say the iWatch because they still have raw parts and the good parts does not really make for it. Windows 10 is driven by an enormous push, gigantic push, much like Kinect but at Windows scale. Which makes me wonder if this is really the OS of the present and future. If it was really that good and tapped the needs the the aspirations of the common man, surely such a huge push would not be necessary, people are generally Intelligent.
