So like I'm hearing Andromeda is definitely not coming in 2018. OEM devices may come, but not with Andromeda OS as it's not ready. The entire project is now under review because there's no app ecosystem to support it

Even MS ditched UWP in the last version of Skype... What a good sign for their devs ! The whole point of UWP is to have the same app running on all Windows flavours. When there's only 1 flavour (really used I mean), why recode/redesign your already coded Win32 app?

Sure about it being UWP? Yes. Positive. Adobe did a post about it when it came out.

But... They knew the app situation when they began developing Andromeda. They killed an entire mobile operating system that had an app problem. Why start at all if that issue would hold them back? Did they assume the app gap would close AFTER they canceled W10M?

For some reason I assumed that they were banking on PWAs as the app ecosystem. If they are thinking real apps, that’s not happening even in 2019.

UWP is the underlying engine, react native is like a binding tech like Xamarin. Instead of C# / Xaml, it's in JSx or TSx. Why is react used, its explained by the team, they built ReactXP to target all platforms and Web (Skype on Outlook beta), which Xamarin doesn't do.

Each MS service/device needs to be dead at least once in his history, so this is no exception...

I've seen lots of "Microsoft shouldn't cancel Andromeda" articles. It should have been clear with the recent reorg that Microsoft is looking at its future and Windows differently now

I do wonder how Microsoft is planning to look at Windows differently when it's too afraid to move it on to new things lol

If MSFT wants to create or upend a new market, it has to arrive holistically & polishes. See the ZTE android 2-display phone in this category for ‘this isn’t a slam dunk’

Well precisely, which is why Microsoft is doing Andromeda OS with it. An entire new Windows OS experience built specifically for dual-screened mobiles.

Having an actual use case for something instead of somewhat-unique form factor isn't being 'afraid'

Since none of us know what that means, and can’t even describe what a ‘good’ software experience would be, and why it’s better than a big phone (beyond ‘surface phone’), I think that speaks volumes.

What's better than a big phone? A bigger phone. What's the problem with a bigger phone? It doesn't fit in your pocket. Foldable solves this problem. Also, not knowing how an OS is going to adapt doesn't mean it'll automatically suck

I dunno why you guys are so desperate to see this device exist. Microsoft would be better off partnering with Samsung to bring a Windows-like experience and great Office apps to Android
