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

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

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

On a serious note, I like Windows, and I like Surface, and I'd love to be able to bring a combination of the two with me in my pocket. I don't see what the problem with that is. Andromeda doesn't even need to be foldable for me... but it's nice they are trying something different

yeah I get that, unfortunately 99% of people don't really need that specific combination unless it has some really unique selling point. I can't see what this has

Just give me a Galaxy that can Continuum into a Windows 10 device when it's docked. 😁

exactly. How awesome would that be. Not gonna happen, but I think Google could recreate the best bits of Windows tbh, they already have in Chrome OS

If it supports x86 emulation then the “app-gap” statements won’t be true

of course it will, there's still no mobile apps. You don't want to run desktop apps on a 6-inch screen

Thank god. Now can someone make a decent desktop Linux to replace it before my 2011 MacbookAir dies... PC manufacturers I'm looking at you. Get off the lazy chair and capture the market.

Not everyone wants to be restricted to Android, Tom.

For two reasons, Microsoft is an OS company. The OS is the key to delivering the experience that Microsoft envisions. Look at this across product lines, and even compared to its competitors. You'll understand it's true.

Microsoft isn’t an OS company and never has been. Microsoft is a software company. Hence microSOFT. Cortana works just as well on Android as it does on Windows. Office for iPad works just as well if not better than on a Windows tablet. The OS doesn’t matter anymore
