Satya Nadella: Windows is the most open platform available

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella was at the Gartner Symposium ITxpo 2016 held in Orlando to talk about the of the company (Windows and Office) but also for her acquire LinkedIn which caused a stir after the public announcement of its acquisition by the company.

A particular moment during Nadella's talk was when he referred to Microsoft's operating system, which according to the CEO has begun a long-term transformation, with the ultimate goal of bringing together all platforms and merging PCs, smartphones and consoles games.

"Windows is the most open platform there is," Satya Nadella told ZDNet, adding that it is aimed at users, developers and IT alike. This approach brings them in contact and when it brings them, something magical happens. ”

Microsoft's efforts to create a unified operating system are mainly based on universal apps, which are supposed to run on all of them των Windows, θα έχουν την ίδια and the same feel, but will adapt to different screen sizes without affecting the user experience.

Of course Mrs Satya Nadella also has the opposite view.

The universal apps platform has often been criticized by many. One of them is Tim Sweeney, CEO of Epic Games, who said (and very right in my opinion) that Microsoft does not offer an open platform, but just the opposite.

"Let's take a look at what happens to developers, specifically: If they apply to become a Microsoft Registered Developer, and Microsoft accepts, what happens to Universal Windows (UWP) app that they developed and submitted to Microsoft?”

“If Microsoft accepts the app, then they will digitally sign it using their DRM to return it to its owner . Then and only then the developer is able to distribute it to users, and users will be able to manually install it to run on any machine with default windows 10 settings. Is this open? You can judge that.”
