Microsoft doesn’t see Windows 10’s mandatory data collection as a privacy risk

Microsoft will release first major Windows 10 update in early November.

Bad enough that when Intuit announced today that it was stopping development of its popular Mint personal finance app for Windows Phone, users went absolutely nuts. “There’s so much about the Windows Phone app that we love — and it’s hard for us to say goodbye to it — but we are confident that this change will help you get even more out of Mint,” says in an officical blog post announcing the discontinuation of support. The Windows 10 Fall Update, codenamed Threshold 2, is planned for the first week in November, and will contain many of the enhancements already seen in builds from the Windows Insider programme. The shift to the software-as-a-service model adopted for the latest OS means that anyone upgrading to Windows 10 will get this new version of Windows. That doesn’t work on Windows Phone. “Your developers are lazy and your management is incompetent if they thought screwing over the users was the right action,” says the top-voted comment on the blog post, in part. “Well I guess Mint doesn’t get my business then.

Meanwhile, Apple’s iPhone is a non-stop money making machine with the most lucrative customer base in the biz, and Google Android is the most popular operating system in the world. That means that the lion’s share of mobile app developers either ignore Windows Phone completely, or else end up neglecting it once they realize that the return on investment just isn’t worth it — just as Intuit found.

From this edition, if you have an unused Product Key for Windows 7 or Windows 8 it will allow you to install Windows 10 from a download as a clean installation. With the new Windows 10 operating system, Microsoft tried to break the cycle with the concept of “Univeral Windows Apps,” which lets developers make one app for the desktop and then have it work on phones and tablets, too.
