    Microsoft :

    You plan to create a tablet Microsoft Brand  in addition to OEM Tablet  Notebook etc?

    in the last period OEMs seem crazy . It might be time to begin to walk alone.

    • 4 Notebook ,
    • 2 Netbook ,
    • one tablet,
    • 1 console , 
    • Enterprice product and Cloud.

    Microsoft have on line store in all country, and many store in US.

    You can.

    As long as it is called Windows or run Windows. I don't think it will be a MS made hardware. MS made hardware like mouse, Xbox, Surface, Kin, Zune, doesn't carry the name of Windows.

    It is possible, just it wouldn't be running Windows.

     

    Leaving WM on 5/2018 if no apps, no dedicated billboards where I drive, no Store name.

    I would like to see a Microsoft tablet that runs a flash based install of Windows 8 or a special Windows 8 Tablet edition, that includes Office, like how the Windows Phone includes office, and how my BlackBerry PlayBook includes Office like software to create and edit Office documents.

    While I undestand MS position regarding its Windows ecosystem, I have to give credit to Dovella: MS releasing its own computing (PC/Tablet/Phone) hardware keeps crossing my mind.

    Not like MS is going to do it but they should certainly be more agresive with OEMs, at very least a big time corporate letter, telling them "stop ruining the Windows experience with your cr@p, its your busines too to the one you are ruining".  And while they are at it start poiniting fingers and slaping someone on the face, for allowing device manufactures to create such major mess they eagerly call "device drivers" with their unconsistent and horrible GUIs, and anoying poping messages all the time, devices included in this complain goes from mouses, all the way to printers, passing through wifi drivers.  Couple of years ago I created a thread here on C9, regarding this issue.

    A good step in the right direction is the Microsoft Signature program, but they need to expand it much more, and quickly

    Or just make the Logo program have requirements that are just as stringent as the signature program. Essentially, you get a logo if you produce a product that just * works.

    That wouldn't work: Microsoft would have to hire many more people to conduct the testing to ensure a product meets requirements, and Microsoft could be intimidated if a large-enough partner wants their way really hard enough (think of how many tens of millions of dollars Dell gets in commission revenue from installing Norton's nagware on consumer desktops, they won't recuperate that loss easily, and they can get away with not having the "Designed for Windows" sticker because people buy Dell anywya).

    I don't think Microsoft can win here: they aren't Apple and they have to work with companies actively involved in a race to the bottom.

    ... and I think we're almost there.

    @Dovella:They may not 'brand' their computer, but just recently, I was watching a TV show where the wavy-flag 4-panel logo was prominently displayed on the back of a laptop screen a-la apple.  It stuck out like a sore thumb, but I guess that was the point.
