Why 2020 will be a Make-or-Break Year for Microsoft & Windows

1905 ratings | 48315 views
In 2020, Microsoft will stop supporting Windows 7 for businesses, and as a result, we may see a decline in PC sales. But can Microsoft prevent that by pushing Windows into a new era of light computing with support for 5G, game streaming, dual-displays and more? The company is going to try, but there's no guarantee it will work either.

it's expensive for businesses to upgrade there computers, and i know a guy who works in IT and he said that "it's way cheaper to still use windows 7 then upgrade to windows 10"

Importance of antivirus rises, Windows 7 will be more unsecure, but as long as you don't surf on unsafe sites, don't pirate, you will be fine with it. And even if your computer gets infected by the virus, viruses are today so weak that you don't even notice them. Just scan your computer monthly with Malwarebytes. Storage all important data to an external USB drive so you can wipe out hard drive and install Windows 7 again if something serious goes wrong

I'm pretty sure it will be a break, every step forward , the break all in its way, specially when is for their own OS , why buy Microsoft OS when they do all of their apps much better on adroid or iOS ? Unless you're a gamer.

I have two laptops. One is over a decade old and one is like 5 years old. The first one has windows 7 and the second windows 10 after upgrade from windows 8, both dual with linux. The decade old is less lagging than the other one, slower but stable and never crashes. Windows 10 crash on their own operations. Damn they crash every time i open any program, even libre office or any other folder for my files. I am not gonna talk about the background programs from win10 and the laptops model from the factory. Just take win10 and throw them off the window! Like jesus! A total mess since win8!

If the launch of the Android foldables actually indicates a market, MS has a small window to get Win Light up and running. If they fail, 10 years from now (at most) Office will have been buried by the Google Docs suite.

People will still use windows , probably more people will upgrade to windows 10 There are no good alternatives to windows , Mac os is only for rich and you can't even game on it Linux , it's still maturing! Chrome os ,nah ! Fuschia os ,? ? ? its not even out yet

No, Microsoft has abandoned the mobile market and has conceded. HoloLens is currently still in development, and the Hub 2 isn't their main focus nor source of revenue, and maybe perhaps the "Always connected PC" will become realized. These are uncharted markets which aren't proven sustainable currently, and I believe are still a ways out before we see tangible effects. I think it's important for these products to exist nonetheless but I don't see anything breaking through in the near future from Redmond consumer wise. Windows will continue to be floating through with OEM partnerships until they possibly decide to concede even to linux hopefully due to continual stagnant demand. If anything they will continue to drive strong Azure growth where they seem to have broken through with creating new cloud solutions.

Has Windows stabilised? It's still a mess of different interfaces and styles. Even their new generation apps can't agree on a fixed standard for design. Unlike Linux and OSX with the interface GUI separated from the programs, Windows is still littered with multiple application and dialogue box styles. Microsoft needs to get a grip on this and fix the design failures.

You know on other sites, I have mentioned that Win 10 works. No issues with hooking up hardware. Printers Scanners. All types of cell phones. They just work. I have many Linux Ubuntu Arch based systems, i use also. It is hard to get third party hardware to work. People keep telling me it is the manufacturer who does not update product in Linux etc. So now Linux and such want you to donate to their sites. Well I would if you could get your act together and allow third party CD'S to work so we could use our printers scanners cameras to work without always having to use the command line to get download extract and run command. Maybe if Linux etc. Charged $5 or $10 for the Operating System to download. People would start using their systems more Then we could get third party drivers to work with the hardware we have. Then people may flock to these other systems. Remember you have to cater to your customer.

Ubuntu is pushing hard with partners like amazon to get people to switch when Windows 7 support ends so this could affect Windows if people do start switching platforms.

Windows 10+ of 2020/21 will be based on the Linux kernel. This change will save Microsoft and the HW driver developers a lot of money. See https://www.zdnet.com/article/ms-linux-lindows-could-microsoft-release-a-desktop-linux/ - The Redmond giant has already released its own Linux distro in Linux-based Azure Sphere for the fastest growing ICT market segment of the cloud. - Microsoft is already allowing complete Linux Distros to run in Windows 10, the logical next step is to allow the Windows desktop to run on top of Linux. They could easily introduce a Win 7 and Win 10 desktop flavor to keep everybody happy. - Microsoft is already reducing the number of people working on Windows, resulting in incidents like in October 2018.

Microsoft has shifted their licensing model's for Enterprise such that most companies will license their platforms (O365, server platforms, etc) in a way where they will be able to upgrade to Windows 10 desktop under combined licensing. Companies replaces machines on a cycle, and this also transitions older OS's out of their environments. I don't really see how corporate america uses desktops/laptops to change much in the next decade. The retail space was far more effected by the mobile market than enterprise.

Going into 2020 I can only say the Windows NT kernel is too outdated and is a waste of time and money and needs to be replaced. Its very inefficient for ARM chips and lower powered (mostly non x86) devices. The file system architecture is also very outdated (like why the heck are they still using drive letters instead of mount points) Yes windows is becoming like a nice looking sports car from the 1960s outdated, and a inefficient bad "engine" but hey, it looks good.
Andrew (2 months ago)
+Bloodrush I know which is why MS will start small (like a windows 10 lite) that will just run store apps on Low power devices and servers and then they will test out the new system and slowly roll it out.

+Core Dream Studios well I mean they don't need to know that, MS just needs to use the Linux kernel (like they did with sphere os) and have a front end that's user friendly. Look how user friendly Ubuntu is... I basicly want a fully windows compatibie MS Linux distro so I can be a better developer

I hope the can make it! By improving by making a newer windows 11!! I really want windows 11 to happen! Also I hope they can keep the PC marking by rising as well by still making more of and laptop !! I really want windows 11 and beyond! Windows 10 is not the last version of windows! And when Microsoft releases a windows 11 I want them to remove windows store and other bad features that happen on windows 8 and 10. I would also like to see them improve their security! And I DO NOT under any circumstances want to see Microsoft name with just windows in the near future! Like I said I want Microsoft to keep making more operating systems instead of the updates to windows 10!

new windows should have windows extra, more customizable and classic windows, something where you can change a lot of stuff of the graphical looks without bodging or third party programs, like windows 98, you should have the right to change everything, not like windows 10

I thought that MS was way ahead of the game with retina scanning to unlock your phone with the Lumia 950/950XL, now it is a must with almost all other smartphones. Now this Core OS is interesting, because this just shows me that the infrastructure that MS is building for it's UWP apps will be amazing, look at Xbox as one example, with Core OS, there is a possibility that them launching with a killer feature with full support for Xbox Game Pass out of the gate will be amazing. Now that we are seeing smart phones that rival the performance of the Xbox, this makes this 'highly' likely. I mean the hero device will be expensive, but if you look at it, they release the device and they bundle 6 months of Game Pass, by doing this, you not only give the customer a device, but an experience as well, something that one can always go to. Problem solved, we don't need a foldable device, we just need a subscription service we use, and the foldable device can compliment that. What do you think? I think it is possible.
Keith Zimmerman (2 months ago)
Its too late for MS to regain what it has lost. Most people will never buy another windows PC. They can do everything from a handheld. The school district I work for supplies laptops to all students due to this fact. Microsoft must first admit it has lost the operating system war. It must then embrace the markets who do still want to use their product. Business, government, and gamers all need windows to keep doing what we do. Consumers have no need for windows and Microsoft is never going to create something that brings them back. The proof is in the disdain we all feel when new windows 10 features get in the way of productivity.

Running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit for as long as I can on my main desktop. No updates, everything runs sandboxed. I have several machines sitting as backups. Been using Windows since Win 3.11. Tried Windows 10 stripped down running Classic Shell (it's on one of my 2 in 1 laptops) and have to use it on our work PCs. I'm in the Windows Insider Fast Ring, just for kicks....may try Win 10 LTSB on a PC mule at some point. ReactOS is looking more attractive and may see more interest when Win7 support ends in 2020.

Windows 10 is crap !
Pojosamaneo (2 months ago)
Windows is not only stagnant, but actively getting worse in some ways. Tablet mode, Windows apps, the half baked UI inconsistencies, etc. make it look stuck in the past compared to iOS and Android. That said, I can't live without it, so I'm looking forward to how thin and light the devices get as snapdragon chips improve. Phone innovations are far beyond what we have in the laptop space. A big change to Windows could change that, or maybe nobody would care because they use their laptops the same way they've been using them since XP. I don't know if it's worth it.

It's simply a reflection of internal affairs. No consistency, no focus, and no balls to unify things. They ain't making a come back if their OS is just a collection of apps offering no synergy. And they need to spend their cash on a proper UX team.... it's embarrassing at this point.

My personal wishlist/opinion: I'd rather get no new features on next Windows 10 Update 19H2, but instead: - Add what is left in Control Panel to the new Settings App and remove Control Panel finally - Remove Internet Explorer, we have Edge and a thousand of other browsers to choose from - Remove Windows Media Player, add missing settings into Groove Music - Redesign or Update File Explorer to Fluent Design system - Optimize Optimize Optimize 5 things to do, shouldn't be that much harder if they really work only on those things. call it Windows 10 Fluent Update (19H2) - Fluent performance - Fluent Design - Fluent Experience
Mitchel Valentino (2 months ago)
BrainCoolo Considering Microsoft’s budget, let’s agree to disagree. I have several friends who are developers at Microsoft. They all say the same thing: We can do a better job, but our bosses won’t let us. They want us to get the product out the door as fast as possible. Unfinished code is compiled with the promise that it can be fixed later during updates. Let’s hope there aren’t too many bugs this time. But there are bugs. And sloppiness. But the updates are done by someone else who isn’t familiar with the code and doesn’t know how to fix it correctly, which results in updates that need updates. And those updates need updates. And the cycle continues. Windows 10 at this point is a dumpster fire of bad code that was written under impossible deadlines. All of this is to say that the talent exists. It could be accomplished. Microsoft has some of the best engineers and developers in the world, but their hands are tied by mismanagement.
