Thanks. So, Windows RT is dead according to him, he was a bit evasive about ARM and phones, could there be Intel waiting in the wings? And he was hugely impressed by the augmented reality.

No, it never was, that was the problem. Now after restructuring there's just one division. And apparently including RT into Windows 10 family is too much a hassle for them. They seem to have chosen...

W10 is still far away, enough time to decide if there will be un upgrade path from the preview or not. And yes, you should have a backup that would get you to a supported OS.

For me as a customer it is important that it works and looks good during the phone's lifetime, which is for me about 2 years minimum. Saves battery? Great. OLED or LCD? Not bothered.

They put a Retina screen on it. They wanted it to look pretty and did not consider an impact on the battery. Also it looks too geeky. I think most of smartwatch manufacturers realise now that people...

You also have a special MS version of Flash as well, which should be safer than the original one and is still useful for some web sites.

I remember that. It was supposed to be the next big thing in app development, so they were bigging that up in a rather unfortunate way. They really need lawyers to do their PR :D

No, I get what I like and played with a bit. I stopped listening uncritically to other people's opinions after a HTC Desire disaster which I did hate.

Windows RT seems to be well and truly dead. MS is bringing some update for the RT devices, but they do not call it Windows 10. Any interest was curbed by Intel Atom processor, which can offer full...

Yes, but that's often enough if you do it early on when all was still working. And better than starting from the beginning and then upgrading again.

Funny, it did work for me. BTW on my Surface 3 Pro, which came originally with W8.1, there's no such section either. But at least you have a working solution.
