    Are they really though? My maths could be off but if you subtract the number of Xbox Ones from the 100 million extra active devices since September you get around 75 million and IIRC that's roughly half of all desktop PCs sold by the major OEM during that time, based on my admittedly very rough back of the envelope workings out that means around half of all PCs being sold with Windows 10 are getting downgraded.

    Not entirely clear on why your company is spending man hours updating your clients' machines? That should happen automatically when you roll out an update that requires elements of the new framework surely?

    The time to move on from Win32 has come, my friends. It's gonna cost a lot of business' and software developers time and money, but as we all know, technology has to move on and Win32 should have died a long, long time ago.
