This feeling I've had since Windows 10 released. I believe most of us have a sense of Windows 10 that it is always unfinished/buggy, specially after the launch of Windows Insiders Program.
I've been wondering, Apple with its softwares, don't make so much noise with its testing programs. They have still been old school, beta builds, release candidates etc, just like pre Windows 8 days.
Why does Microsoft have to ambush us with so much of test softwares, Windows, Office, Xbox right from early stages.
Then in Windows, they got to manage, Fast, Slow, Release Preview rings. It's like they create this mess on purpose or something. In the world where Saas is taking over for over simplicity, it seems in Microsoft it is the other way round, they like to complicate things.
Apple's MacOS, iPhone they don't follow the same route yet there OS looks polish. Granted they too are buggy however, not as buggy as Anniversary Update even after millions of users testing it out.
I believe this can be simplified. For themselves, for us and I somehow believe, their softwares will be more stable and reliable, just like Windows 8 and OSes that came before.
How many of you share same sentiments as mine?
For a while I've been thinking to join the Thurrot Premium, I've been with this site for quite a long time now and feel perhaps I could become Premium member.
However, I don't see as many premium content. I doubt if it's once a week.
Let me know what you guys think and advise please.
I’ve been thinking of this for quite a while and wanted to share with you all to get some feedback.
The thoughts triggered after MS announced about the Centennial MS Office suite coming to Win Store.
My problem is this, why would MS port a Win32 version of Office suite or Office365 suite of apps to Windows Store through Desktop Bridge, and not develop a true/hero full fledge desktop grade UWP Office suite/Office365 apps?
If, MS themselves will not fully realize UWP potential and show it to the developers community (like myself) that what UWP can trully do, its advantages etc, they had the chance to make one true/hero UWP app (Office suite in this case) but instead of they do is simply port via Desktop Bridge.
What is a developer supposed to do? Simply port their legacy apps to Store, develop a new UWP app..
I’ve also said in other blogs and sites that, of course currently there are no good apps in the Store, apart from a few of course, there are no full fledge business/LOB apps. Eg, a midsize to large enterprises run on ERP systems such as Sage, SAP etc. If UWP is not ready, how are these massive apps supposed to run or get developed for UWP?
Let feedbacks come through.. I did love to listen what you all have to say.
