    Great stuff as always from the best in the business, the duo of Thurrott & Foley, kicking butt and taking names (Microsoft codenames that is... lol).


    I like the audience questions too, some very legitimate questions being asked.


    Next week will be the interesting one. I definitely think Microsoft with each Ignite, BUILD and every other event in-between is showing that the Enterprise is definitely the future for them. They will cater to niches here and there, obviously XBOX is their most consumer facing product in their arsenal, Windows over time is turning into a Service and depending on what this special Andromeda touch-first OS ends up being, that could be the version that will be pushed to consumers via 2-in-1's since traditional tower PC's are declining YoY.

      I wasn't really convinced by Pauls response that Productivity advantage of Windows is useful for consumers. I don't believe there are many, only a tiny few, consumers interested in productivity. That is just work stuff. They want to relax and chill out, and its only very occasional use of Office, and they already have reasonable Android/iOS alternatives office apps for their occasional use.

      Consumers really don't care about really powerful keyboard commands, because they prefer not to have any keyboard whatsoever !
