    <p>i understand we need to try these machines.</p><p><br></p><p>Yet I’ve noticed how reluctant is the marketing spiel around these machines abilities to run win32 code. Clearly their setting the ground on how this will be analysed. Exe by exe basis? This suggests that this code will run poorly … maybe impractical for day to day use, if not optimized for these machines.</p><p><br></p><p>So it looks like a kind of a donkey pretending to be a horse in the Windows context. The comparison with the XBox One backwards compatibility it’s spot on … it seams. Yet the key factor of Xbox One is not in running Xbox 360 well, that simply solidifies the value proposition. In fact that came after the value was established.</p><p><br></p><p>The value proposition is battery life for now, but than again so are any other ARM based options for productivity, but it’s not confined to that. The question will be, apart from battery life what more and what less in comparison, and what is the public value for those. Within this I feel that battery life albeit important it is not the killer feature if x32 runs are not prestine, which seams to be the case.</p><p><br></p><p>Will see. It will really depend how the practice affects perception either way. The initial moments will be very important.</p><p><br></p><p>I feel the future of Windows in the mass market is not Windows … sorry.</p>
