To Satya Nadella, Frank X. Shaw, Terry Myerson, or anyone in Redmond WA that wants to respond,
WHAT ARE YOU DOING?
I mean it, ZDNet is reporting the company is selling a “Microsoft Edition” of the S8. So are you done with Windows Mobile?
I don’t mean the bullshit about maintaining of the software; but in actually updating the OS with new features or maybe an update UI.
I only ask because after the retrenchment there has been silence other than the pat answer of being committed to Windows phone. And honestly that sounds hollow. In actuality Microsoft has done the barest of bare minimums in terms of support. The other reality is Microsoft has shifted its mobile concerns to supporting iOS and Android (when they feel like they toss phone users a bone if we’re lucky).
And now Microsoft is getting ready to sell the Samsung S8 in it’s stores (which they don’t EVER talk about).
So Microsoft would like us to know something; like are you now really done playing catchup in the phone market?
Are you ready to say the words so everyone can move on because you are now done with mobile?
Or are you holding on to dear life because you know saying, “We are done”, kills UWP in its already stagnant tracks.
I mean honestly you should be honest, just be fucking honest; so we and you can move on.
Sincerely a tired fan boy
