It has been a good couple of months for Microsoft, hasn't it? Windows 10 is off to a solid start - 110 million installations in the first three months is not to be scoffed at - and the
software technology giant took to the stage this week to unveil a dazzling array of new in-house hardware.
Microsoft has rediscovered its mojo and Windows 10 is proving to be something of a catlyst for the industry as a whole. Multiple vendors are serving up laptops that are a beauty to behold, convertible 2-in-1s have actually become a thing, while the likes of Band, Lumia, Surface, HoloLens and Xbox are all showing promise. If nothing else, Microsoft has edged its way back into contention when it comes to consumer decision making.
But here's the thing, as impressive as the devices are, will they sell in the volume required to upset the status quo? I personally like the look of the Surface Pro 4 and Lumia 950, but Windows 10 is readily available as a free upgrade, and it's running well enough on my 2012 ThinkPad to minimise the desire to purchase new hardware.
And therein lies a challenge: who is Microsoft's target audience these days? Swathes of traditional loyalists are shying away from Microsoft claiming that the company is becoming too much like Apple or Google. Meanwhile, millions of others will give Windows 10 devices the cold shoulder because they're not made by ... well, Apple or Google.
And then there's the chicken-and-egg situation: Windows 10 hardware is here and it's beautiful, but will the apps and developers follow?
Only time will tell, but it is an interesting topic so for this week's question let us ask: which Windows 10 devices might you actually buy? Be it phone, tablet, laptop, something else or nothing at all, let us know what and why using the comments facility below.
