For those of us still chained to the desktop. That said, the Surface Duo and Neo look intriguing...

Microsoft doesn’t think Windows is important anymore
It’s all about apps and services
The Verge - Oct 3, 2019

Microsoft had a big day for Surface, introducing new hardware for the holiday season and teasing dual-screen devices like the Surface Duo and Surface Neo that are coming next year. But it was Nadella’s interview with Wired that really stood out. “What is most important for us is the app model and the experience,” revealed Nadella, further cementing that Windows has slipped down the importance list at Microsoft. “How people are going to write apps for Duo and Neo will have a lot more to do with each other than just writing a Windows app or an Android app, because it’s going to be about the Microsoft Graph.”

If MS goes down the road holding Android's hand, especialy where mobile is concerned, then count me out.
