Why not let the customers decide whether v2 is 'just an incremental upgrade' ? is Microsoft so smart that they know every possible use for this tech and can definitively declare that v2 would help no one? That has never been true of any technology to date. from DEC being amazed at what people were doing with the first PDP's, the instant market created by the ISA bus standard, no one can see the future. Not even microsoft.

Sure but the first cell phones were actually released to the public. I don;t recall a manufacturer sending out a press release announcing they weren't going to deliver anything. usually, they announced they were delivering new features early, or releasing yet another model. This is bizarre, and coming from MSFT they clearly have no idea what to do this tech, so they should be getting as many lens out the door as possible so someone can discover a great use case. This is the opposite of that...

Due to no apps the touch screen on the SP/SB line is nearly. I have the pen, and it's still mostly useless. The pen costs extra, BTW. If I really wanted I guess I could buy a $600 touchscreen monitor and call it even. But why? I would trade touchscreen on my SP3 for a better mousepad in a heart beat - something like in the new MBP would be great.

Public search engine? Uhm, no. No expectation of Privacy? Have you read MSFT privacy policy? Have you read what they do with the data? Didn't think so, even through it is on the links you yourself provided. Your customers need actual advice, not scare hilarious scare mongering As someone in the IT profession you have two choices: Get used to Windows 10, or retire, because it isn't going anywhere.

Here's a tip that might save you some money: "if you ask a lawyer if you should so something, they ALWAYS say no". That protects them, not you. If you are big enough to have teams of lawyers giving you advice that serves their interest, not yours, then you are big enough to spring for the $84/yr Enterprise licenses of Windows 10.
