It is likely to cripple your collaboration with your customers/cooperatives, presuming that most of them are using Office. Even within your company's IT walls, you will be handicapped if your company is using Exchange, SharePoint, Lync... and many are.
Preinstalled, maybe (though I wouldn't mind if you share some info). But PCs are much easier to dual-boot (as long as they don't come with some sort of uEFI level OS lockdown, and I cannot recall seeing any) and Windows itself allows for dual boot.Android, to my knowledge, isn't that friendly to idea of other OS presence.
They will probably be very quiet and keep out of the spotlight, as there is solid chance they also have some butter on their heads, too.
Microsoft got kicked hard in the... for their IE/Netscaoe and Word/Wordperfect stints, and emerged reasonably benign corporation after that... To the degree where they don't even try to - for example - retaliate to Google for quite obviously trying to undermine Microsoft's recent mobile efforts.Treatment I honestly think that other big players should have, especially Google. For such beasts, a lesson in humility is almost always worth it's price.I'm pretty sure they cannot...
No, it isn't.I owned and still own one PC with Vista. It was my main gaming/photo editing machine back in the days - and it served me bloody well. I did wait until SP1, when OEMs (approximately) fixed crappy drivers they had on Vista's release, and Vista became more stable OS than XP ever was. Sure it needed more resources than XP, but hey - it was 6 years newer than XP. On decent machine with 4GB of RAM, it was my conclusion that it carries load much better than XP on...
Microsoft works with partners, too. Cannot recall they recently tried preventing them from creating dual-boot computers, or dropping support for non-Windows OSes. Obviously they didn't complain that this tablet will dual-boot with Android. True, they are underdog in mobile devices, but even in area they dominate - desktops and laptops - they are not forcing OEMs to lock their machines to Windows, which would be easily possible.
Microsoft was evil one, but after being wrist-slapped for monopolistic crap time ago, they turned quite benign.In the last few years, among the other things Google did:Trojan-horsing Apple with Eric Schmidt and pulling some tricks with Oracle, too.Try to undermine Apple with feature-lacking Gmaps, only to relase - their own words - "the best Gmap application on any platform" after Apple showed them middle finger and released their own in-house maps.Blocked MS from having...
Doesn't make sense. From everything I have read so far, Windows Phone is more efficient than Android. If WP is under-performing on any hardware, Android will do even worst. But I think you're wrong. Much as I played with Lumia 520 - which is the lowest current WP on the market - it behaves quite well.
iPad is made by Apple. If Apple decides to enable users to dual-boot, I'm sure Apple will not stop Apple from doing that.T300 is made by Asus. If Asus wants to make dual boot possible, Google OR Microsoft should not be able to blackmail them into not doing that. After all, you can dual-boot laptops and desktops, including Apple machines.I don't know if this rumour is true... but after Google's little YouTube stint with Windows Phone, I would not be surprised. They know...
I've read somewhere that NASA specifies Hardlex crystals for their Astronauts' Omega watches over Sapphire glass. Sapphire is harder to scratch, but Hardlex is less brittle. I don't know how Gorilla glass compares to Hardlex, but compared to Sapphire, it seems to be less scratch resistant and less brittle, not unlike Hardlex. It will be interesting to see how well Sapphire performs on phones. Unless, of course, Apple is not considering this for their smartwatch and some...
