Who/what is a Public Analyst? Who or what would be a non-Public Analyst?
You are in no danger of doing a Snowden. Even if you wanted to you lack the essentials needed to be able.
The world's most popular device? It has less than 5% market share just in tablets much less all devices.
Where does it rank on your world? (No worries; you do not need to name which planet that is.)
Not "Is true." It was an April Fool's Day article. Your use of it as a reference re-reveals how uninformed you are.
Nadella didn't say that.
Your comment belies your comment. If there was no reason to mention it then why did you?
You are right. High end phones that don't offer full W10 features won't sell.
A complete waste of time and no doubt another big loss for the new division that Phones is now part of.
Too bad they don't have Intel processors.
You see a resurgence in Win 10 phones? Before they have even been released?
How bad does something have to be to lose share before it is available?
It works in Chrome.
Moztlla is a widely used browser; it is NOT all of Linux.
What do you say about Davi Prasad Shetty? Does his work rob other doctors?
Mayhap being Shetty isn't actually a bad thing and you are just being ignorant.
Absolutely no need to google a quoted statement. It is already found; searching for it is redundant.
What might be helpful here is some context:
Who said it.
Why they might have that perspective.
What is it's potential relevance to anything being discussed here.
You offer the unnecessary and omit the substance. Typical.
Interesting: You admit you are literally incorrect and are simply trying to support a lie by claiming that it isn't an OS while in the same breath calling it an OS but throwing in the word "toy" to cover up your duplicity. This must be very stressful. How can this mendacity be sufficiently rewarded?
If only you could both make your claims and be correct, but alas, this cannot be. In the mean time you fart and tap dance furiously in the hope that you can be noticed without being examined closely enough to be exposed.
One cannot browse the web without using a computing device.
Denying this only exposes your misrepresentation here.
Odd that. You know what happened a decade ago but have no idea what is going on today. Here is a snippet that could inform you -- if you are capable of taking in new information.
Windows will be embracing a[nother] Linux feature, like no-cost upgrades, open source coding and porting widely used programs to other platforms.
"Microsoft, Google, Amazon, others, aim for royalty-free video codecs"
"Microsoft, Google, Mozilla, Cisco, Intel, Netflix, and Amazon today launched a new consortium, the Alliance for Open Media. The group plans to develop next-generation media formats—including audio and still images, but with video as the top priority—and deliver them as royalty-free open source, suitable for both commercial and noncommercial content."
Even if you decide to buy a compiler suite and learn how to use it, do not compile these CODECs! Just keep using the old ones until nothing will play on your computer. Productivity will soar.
Bet you didn't know:
"According to a new report by Cloud Market, Ubuntu is more than twice as popular on Amazon EC2 as all other operating systems combined. Given that Amazon Web Services has 57% of the public cloud market, Ubuntu is clearly the most popular OS for cloud systems. This is further bolstered by a recent OpenStack survey, which found that more than half of respondents used Ubuntu for cloud-based production environments. Centos was a distant second at 29%, and RHEL came in third at 11%. "In addition to AWS, Ubuntu has been available on HP Cloud, and Microsoft Azure since 2013. It's also now available on Google Cloud Platform, Fujitsu, and Joyent." The article concludes, "People still see Ubuntu as primarily a desktop operating system. It's not — and hasn't been for some time."
That was true last century. Welcome to the present day world:
"NPD: Chromebooks outsell Windows laptops"
"Many people have resisted the idea that Chromebooks really were growing in popularity. Now, less five years after the first commercial Chromebook, the Samsung Series 5 and Acer Chromebook went on sale, NPD, the global retail research group, is reporting that Chromebook sales in June and early July had exceeded "sales of Windows notebooks ... passing the 50 percent market share threshold."
"Overall, according to NPD, "Chromebook sales through the U.S. B2B channels increased 43 percent during the first half of 2015." For retailers and resellers this was good news because it helped to keep overall Business to Business (B2B) PC and tablet sales from falling.
This comes after a year, 2014, when Google OS-equipped, Android and Chrome, devices saw a 29 percent increase, propelled primarily by Chromebook sales, while Apple devices, mostly iPads, dropped by 12 percent and Windows devices, largely laptops, declined by 8 percent.
So far this year, Chromebooks have made notebooks the strongest B2B corporate client devices. Overall Chromebooks sales are up in U.S. B2B channels by 43 percent."
Nowadays consumer sales of devices that use Windows are less than a fifth of sales of devices that run another OS. And now business-to-business sales of just Chromebooks exceed Microsoft's non-consumer sales among laptop devices.
And then begins to drop.

"Windows 10's usage share growth flatlines"
"Windows 10's usage share, nearly 6.6% on Sunday, dropped to 5.8% Monday, then slipped to 5.7% Wednesday, numbers from StatCounter showed. Week-over-week increases also weakened, falling from healthy gains in both percentage and absolute terms the week before to the lowest since the July 29 rollout of the new operating system."
Are people uninstalling it now? Perhaps, perhaps not.
"The fall-off on Monday from Sunday's peak of 6.6% was normal: Consumer-oriented operating systems, as are the vast bulk of those that have been upgraded to Windows 10, typically peak on weekends, then fall when people return to work where they sit in front of an older OS on their office devices.
But the flat line shown by Windows 10 this week was a first. Even as growth slowed last week between Monday, Aug. 10, and Wednesday, Aug. 12, Windows 10 recorded some day-over-day gains, small though they were. However, between Monday, Aug. 17, and Wednesday, Aug. 19, Windows 10 lost about half a percentage point of user share.
That did not happen six years ago when Microsoft launched Windows 7. During the first three weeks after its Oct. 22, 2009, debut, Windows 7 grew slower than has Windows 10, but never lost user share except on a Monday following a weekend peak."
Possibly just a slackening of interest after the initial curiosity wears off.
Oh, so it is just identical to the proprietary product advocacy model then. One may hardly imagine how they came up with it, I suppose.
