“Last week, Microsoft announced a blockbuster corporate reorganization
that was ostensibly about focusing on the cloud and AI. But it was
really about something else: Demoting Windows in shocking, unexpected ways.”

This may be good for the desktop. No, this cannot be good.

MSFT and *NIX/ANDROID parted ways some time, several years ago.
Something common simply had to occur at a 5- to 10-yr-old level. And
the WEB was wide-wide-wide open to greater industrialization from the
*NIX perspective of tablets and handhelds. Welcome to Facebook, the
selfie generation, and endless present tirades on political posturing.
I can remember a poll long, long ago among women and the WEB: A
primary consideration then being quick-&-ready, date-&-mate contacts.
Long after, for others, being overjoyed was to purchase a CD to
explore freeware programs from early x2 CD units that cost $200US,
being then a time largely without effective if any network
communication. There was of course no poll neither then to read a
significant hostility to the PC: Any mention of a requisite
learning-curve to operate one then, as to this day, accounts
significantly against a PC. I may have heard reference, just the
other day, to fully a third of an educated US population disavowing
any significant knowledge or skills needed to maintain or functionally
operate a personal computer.

Call it national pride that Windows, for many, is only a familiar name
associated with business and the workplace. Getting away from which
and home again being of vastly higher significance and second only to
getting a paycheck.
