Seems to me it should not be too much longer. phands.thehemorhoid and momo.dahomo not welcome on this thread.
Critical mass results in a meltdown. Or even a catastrophic explosion.
Study up on your nuclear physics, dude. But, you may well be right that
MSFT and NOK are headed for a meltdown and reactor vessel breach.
According to Merriam Webster:
Definition of CRITICAL MASS
: a size, number, or amount large enough to produce a particular result
First Known Use of CRITICAL MASS
1919 (Just a few years before the idea of a nuclear melton or reactor vessel breach)
Used exactly as it should have been.
I knew what the poster intended, but the ideas of escape velocity or tipping point would have been more in keeping with the intent.
In reply to the question - I would have preferred to see 8.1 released this summer, with a big run-up over the summer with the new Xbox, concurrent with Nokia release of both a full tablet, and maybe an RT tablet, all topped off with a major marketing campaign. So, tipping point Sep 1.
But, no 8.1 this summer, so who knows....
Critical mass will occur when Microsoft enables VPN via win8 mobile and you are able to transact seamlessly with the windows cloud - same as what you can do with a PC. This will create a mountain of government sales and drives for standardization in the corp world where Joe employee can expense his Nokia phone.
All eyes are on Microsoft the get their excrement together to ready the ecosystem. Till then - only some of the Joe public will dabble with Windows.
it's never going to happen. the trend is clearly away from evil ware to something else. The meltdown
will happen when cio's wake up and see just how big a cost save bonus they're going to get
throwing office over board by replacing it with free openoffice and chrome based tablet, kissing hunders
of dollars per seat in evil ware licensing fees good bye. I haven't used evil ware office in years.
2 years + in development and MS still proves it doesn't have a clue. Things HAVE to get better, nobody can throw these "built in" advantages away. Portable computing is not about facebook. Please MS, please show up for work.
Nokia Conversations put a piece out on remote desktop access this morning or yesterday. Just visit Windows Store. Maybe it's not over a VPN, but would be there soon no doubt if not. Who would link their PC over an unsecure connection?
