Re: One OS for every device
What I'm seeing right now Office making strides into the mobile OSes is better for business than Win 10 on every device.  The win comes with the tools but I'm not seeing huge benefits of Win 10 on a phone since you'll still have to make trade offs.

Re: App store
@SachinEE I agree to that. Most developers do not want to work with Windows apps because they are not easy to make. Whatever programming language you use, transforming the logic you applied in building the iOS or Android app takes a lot of time here, because some way or the other the logic changes and so does the code.

Re: One OS for every device
@SaneIT: I also would be sticking to android if Windows 10 does not address the "One OS" visions it has been hyping us with. Frankly I am really excited about the Windows 10 feature that enables you to have an interactive digital white board in your conference room. I forgot what the tech is called, though.

Re: One OS for every device
I certainly hope so because what I'm seeing right now isn't making me feel like they get it.  With 7 different versions of Windows it seems like the disconnects are still there.  If I'm going to have a different experience on different devices then I'm just going to end up frustrated.  At that point I might as well stick with Android on my phone because I know what to expect rather than guessing at what functions may or may not work.

App store
This is a very good news for app developers everywhere. Windows platform is notorious for making app development extremely difficult. Making and launching apps is a nightmare. Also if this comes together the rest of the world will be getting some of those iOS apps that otherwise users don't get. I really like windows over any other platform because it does not have any lag even after months of use.

Re: One OS for every device
@SaneIT: I think they will be solving this issue. Also I think Windows 10 would be automatically and collectively updated on all platforms, otherwise it makes no sense to call it a "windows connect".

One OS for every device
Some of this is really disappointing but I guess we should have seen it coming.  Microsoft's one OS for every device is quickly turning out just like the old model.  I think there are at least 7 versions of Win 10 planned, which seems counter to the claims that you'll run the same OS everywhere.  If I'm running a version on my Surface that has capabilities on a corporate network that my phone doesn't then what's the point?  If I'm juggling three versions of Windows, patching, features, etc  how is that different than running Android or iOS on my tablet/phone/whatever?
