more desirable than those that come later, even if those later systems are demonstrably better?
Perhaps a decision will be made in the future, where, apps for an ecosystem have to be "portable" to other systems, with minimum tweaking. It should be the "write once, run anywhere" type of environment, and then, people will be free to switch to other systems with little headaches.
I remember the mantra 10 years ago was to write portable apps that could and would run on any OS, via languages like Java, its spinoff java script, and others. Linux was to be the all encompassing vessel for that deployment. Unfortunately, that vision of utopia has been hijacked by individual manufacturer greed and dictatorial policy. Android and its now many flavors came close, but now it too is divergent. Good luck Microsoft/Nokia, you may never get there.
it's all nice and good for MS to be doing this but how does MS decide who gets help or not and where the heck do you apply? Maybe the author could spend a little time researching that and adding it to the story to make this a bit more of a story and would probably get the author a lot more views.
