Re: Sounds like an admission of defeat
Weirdly, I was OK with Vista. Sure, it was a bit resource hungry but it actually seemed more stable for me than XP. 7 was nicely a bit quicker.
10 I'm not happy with and it continued to move me across to Mac / Linux. It doesn't provide a speed boost, font rendering is worse, reliability is back to Windows 98 (not SE) levels of unreliability.
The fact that Microsoft no longer considers the OS the most important thing suggests to me that they are starting to see Windows becoming less profitable, or even a loss-leader in the (very?) long term, and they're already working on a plan so they can pull the plug on it as and when that happens.
