Apple vs Windows - Could this be the critical next step in a more connected world of tech?

Connor DeLaney

"If you’re not prepared to be wrong, you’ll never come up with anything original."

In an industry where the expectations are to kill or be killed, Microsoft took a stand in their new update to Windows 11, saying that, "Operating systems and devices should mold to our needs, not the other way around."

With that in mind, Microsoft's CEO continued in talking about how they want to bring technology more together. "[Microsoft's] technology is being built to work with as many products as possible, including software for competing Google Android smartphones."

The article continues, talking through Windows's goal of allowing developers and even Google with their apps to go onto Windows and the Microsoft Store and sell their programs for next to no commissions to Microsoft itself, a heavy shift from the industry standard.

To wrap up, I'm very curious what the long-term approach for Microsoft will do to the industry, and how companies like Apple will respond.

Awesome!  We should be using industry-standard stuff, not stuff that only works with Microsoft or Apple.  Thanks for the article.
