Microsoft Could Drop Support for Windows RT

/ 6 years ago


According to Microsoft Devices Chief Julie Larson-Green, Microsoft has too many operating systems for consumers and is looking to compact rather than expand.

“We have the Windows Phone OS, we have Windows RT and we have full Windows. We’re not going to have three”, said Larson-Green.

Larson also points out the poor sales made by the Surface RT series, leading Microsoft in losing $900 million. Now, Microsoft seems to be looking for a unified, mobile friendly edition of Windows, but still wants to differentiate the intensive desktop version.

“[Windows RT] just didn’t do everything that you expected Windows to do. So there’s been a lot of talk about it should have been a rebranding. We should not have called it Windows. How should we have made it more differentiated? I think over time you’ll see us continue to differentiate it more.” the same Larson-Green added.

While Larson states that the company believes in a high demand for mobile OS, Microsoft is said to be discussing a new future for Windows, in which there will be a single Windows OS for all device.
