“Due to the fact that we are too far behind, we had to start the race from the point where the users reside, says Panay. – This mark, ironically, was Google operating system. But if our potential customers are already using Android and I think its the best solution, should we again try to create a competitive solution? We at Microsoft believe that there is. In the past we have tried to do something, but, as practice showed, it only slowed us down, not allowing to develop with the market”.

Still a casual user is unlikely to buy a new product, which is rather designed for professional users. And if so, it appears that Microsoft screwed up again.
