Re: "Windows is not exclusively developed for IT professionals"
@dotdavid it's worse than that: Win8 onwards weren't developed for PC users of any kind. The whole mess is firmly aimed at tablet and mobile, the market Microsoft had no foothold in and the store environment riding on it.
The problem is the lowest common denominator across mobile,tab&PC is a screen + OS. Can't assume a keyboard,mouse,touchscreen,microphone or even speakers. Not even internet access is guaranteed. So they picked the things they wanted to support (the mobile market and associated monopoly store) and assumed the desktop monopoly would force acceptance on the desktop.
If only they'd killed off the real desktop OS *before* trying to kill off the desktop. Monopoly pressure doesn't apply if there's actually a choice.
