  • The new Dropbox Windows 10 app

In a series of tweets, Joe Belfiore, Corporate Vice President in the Operating Systems Group at Microsoft, revealed late on Sunday that the Windows operating system will only help with bug fixes and security updates for existing users.

"We have tried VERY HARD to incent app devs".

Microsoft has always had an upper hand when it came to PC and the company tried to use this superiority in mobile. Most of the operating system featured a black background with a focus on text instead of icons.

"After Satya Nadella took over [as chief executive], that clearly became the strategy - and after that happened what incentive was there to buy a Windows-powered phone?" The decision was made amid the company's increased efforts in developing apps for other platforms.
