Summary:

  • The Surface brand now covers smartphones, tablets, laptops, and desktop computers.
  • It was Nadella who killed the Windows Phone and Windows 10 Mobile smartphone business. However, he finally realized the smartphone is a key device for productivity.

Microsoft Stock: Strong-Arm Tactic Will Compel Windows 7 Holdouts To Upgrade

Microsoft Stock:

motek 1The article was written by Motek Moyen Research Seeking Alpha’s #1 Writer on Long Ideas and #2 in Technology – Senior Analyst at I Know First.

Summary:

  • Windows 7 was released almost 10 years ago. Microsoft stock has a headwind from the fact that Windows 7 still touts more than 36% market share.
  • Microsoft failed to meet its target of 1 billion devices on Windows 10 partly because many business and home users refused to upgrade from Windows 7.
  • Windows 7 support will end on January 24, 2020. Only volume licensed Windows 7 Pro and Windows 7 Enterprise versions will get paid extended support.
  • The expensive fees that Microsoft will charge Windows 7 Pro and Windows 7 Enterprise volume license owners will force them to upgrade to Windows 10.
  • I commend this strong-arm tactic of Microsoft. Microsoft is better off when most Windows 7 users are compelled to upgrade to Windows 10.

Intel Stock Prediction

Summary:

  • Intel is a leader in backing the open-source Linux OS kernel development. It makes sense for Intel to also start backing the development of ReactOS.
  • ReactOS is an open-source operating system for x86/x64 computers. ReactOS is being developed to run Windows-centric software at native hardware level.
  • Independent programmers are developing ReactOS from the ground-up. It is legal and Microsoft can do nothing about it.
  • The most recent Alpha version of ReactOS now supports Windows NT6+ software. It means ReactOS is now compatible with software made for Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 10.
  • ReactOS is an optimized operating system than can even run on old computers with RAM as little as 96 megabytes. Intel can use ReactOS to start promoting Windows-like smartphones.
