— Actually, I like to test out Linux varieties (“distro’s”),
but feel Microsoft Windows 10 offers a great promise
for the future, if only Microsoft might not take lightly
the suggestions of common users such as myself, give the ideas
due consideration, and perhaps actually adopt ideas which are better
than the present ideas and philosophy there, for Microsoft’s future, either in terms of its market share
(3.6 percent of all PC users are now using Linux),
and for Microsoft’s sales and bottom line.

Three Simple Changes Microsoft Needs to Make,
to Retain Market Share and Customer Loyalty

Windows 10, Cortana & Artificial Intelligence (AI):
Technological Salvation, Technological Singularity or not,
Here are three simple ideas Which should help Microsoft,
with great links, Microsoft news and goodies!

The Daily Walk with Love (link to Home page and blog), February 19, 2019, by Paul Evans. Windows 10 photograph from an unknown source, (but for which, many thanks. Video is Microsoft Switches Edge to Chromium Engine, YouTube, 7:34. We also have a treat for my readers in the information provided about “Windows 10 God mode.”
See Windows XP regains while Windows 7 Market Share drops, Windows 10 stagnant, which was an article back in last July. Still, you get the idea… you would think Windows 10 would be doing a lot better than this. I’m not going to even touch on the negative aspects of the situation with Windows 10, except to say that Linux’s market share is noticeably increasing and it’s free. Below are three ideas I came up with that might help Microsoft do better in sales of Windows 10. We also give you the very latest, surprising news from inside Microsoft. If nothing else, the first idea would bring in more market share for Microsoft while also bringing in more revenue, increasing its sales and increasing its market share. Microsoft, you should really consider these ideas:

Actually, I am a sometime Linux fan, but feel Microsoft Windows 10 offers the best promise for the future, if only Microsoft might not take lightly the suggestions of ordinary users such as myself, give them due consideration, and and actually adopt ideas which are better than the present status for Microsoft’s future, either in terms of its market share (3.6 percent of all PC users now using Linux), or Microsoft’s bottom line. I ALWAYS used Windows until the last couple of years. I am somewhat fearful that if Microsoft makes no moves except those of a typical monopoly, it seems to me like a “dinosaur in the late Cretaceous.”
This despite the fact that recent moves (such as the acquisition of LinkedIn) by the company are totally in the right direction as the video below demonstrates. And actually the AI doesn’t need to be on your machine, since every OS or program which connects to the internet is now connected to the AI. (Scary, isn’t it.) Lately I have been using the free Linux program “caffe,” which makes your OS smarter and gives the CPU deep learning capability. I noticed that some of the code for this is by Google, but as far as I can see it is entirely given as open source and works on almost all Linux distributions.
Brand new from Microsoft: See Microsoft is going all-in on ‘Inner Source’, zDNet, February 18, 2019, by Mary Jo Foley: “Microsoft is staffing up an internal Inner Source initiative to bring open-source principles, methodologies and tools for use by development teams inside the company.”
The first and most obvious suggestion I have for Microsoft is to allow and even strongly market Windows 10 <em>by subscription</em>, as they have done with their Office 365. If they charged $12 a month for Windows 10 Home and $15 a month for Pro, over a 20-month subscription, it should be noted that not only would you lure people now using XP, Vista and Windows 7, but some Linux users as well — But consider what $12 a month would add up to over say, a 20 month contract: That’s $240, right, considerably more than you make now. Microsoft…. Many poor and struggling Americans could much more easily come up with $12 or $15 a month, but not $120 or $200. Microsoft, I have been preaching this to your techs but no one seemed to want to listen…. why is that? However, yesterday I heard in a phone call I had with Microsoft that the company had in fact taken my suggestion and had been offering Windows 10 by subscription for “about six months.” </strong></p>
<p><strong>A second idea would be to integrate the Linux Cinnamon desktop into Windows, either by default or as a choice made during installation. Linux is mostly all ” open=”” source,”=”” so=”” why=”” not=”” use=”” it?=”” all=”” you’d=”” have=”” to=”” do=”” is=”” find=”” a=”” way=”” integrate=”” cortana=”” into=”” that=”” environment.=”” (i=”” see=”” kali=”” linux=”” and=”” debian=”” are=”” in=”” fact=”” being=”” included=”” the=”” next=”” releases=”” of=”” windows=”” 10:=”” good=”” going=”” guys,=”” i=”” most=”” certainly=”” agree=”” about=”” debian.=”” google=”” has=”” actually=”” chosen=”” as=”” their=”” os=”” for=”” future,=”” too.=”” personally=”” think=”” including=”” major=”” elements=”” an=”” may=”” be=”” mistake,=”” since=”” big-time=”” hackers=”” use).=”” but=”” then,=”” stunning=”” move,=”” Microsoft=”” quite=”” recently=”” announced=”” they=”” replacing=”” “engine”=”” edge=”” (their=”” new=”” web=”” browser)=”” with=”” source=”” chrome=”” engine….=”” this=”” means=”” services=”” would=”” available=”” on=”” apple=”” machines=”” already=”” android,=”” (for=”” free).<=”” strong=””>

Finally, for keeping and gaining market share and customer loyalty, Microsoft should really provide full support services for everything they sell, at Least for a year and during any re-installation of any product. Imagine what a selling point THAT would be! These are my own ideas, I have never read them anywhere except in articles I have written. Links to a couple of these, which I now admit took too negative a tone, follow.

Windows 10 God Mode

Here is Windows 10 GodMode… first create an empty folder on the desktop, then name it: “{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}” (everything inside the quotes including the brackets). This will give you the power to customize Windows 10 in many detailed ways. Also see How to Speed Up Your Windows 10 Performance! (New), YouTube – 17:42.
