AdDuplex has been the leading cross-promotion network for Windows Phone for some time. With this position, the company is often passing along information about the platform that would otherwise be kept quiet. For example, thanks to AdDuplex we now know that Windows 10 Mobile powers 14% of active Windows Phone handsets. Last month that share was 11.9%. While there has been some positive movement, it is not enough to make Microsoft stand up and cheer.The data shows that Windows Phone 8.1 still owns a commanding 77.3% of active Windows Phone units. Windows Phone 8 accounts for 6.7%, and Windows Phone 7.x is still running 1.7% of active Windows Phone units.Breaking up Windows 10 Mobile even more, 52.4% of phones running the OS are using the new Anniversary Update (version 1607).

Microsoft is providing an update on Office 2019 today, revealing that the apps will only run on Windows 10. In a support article for service and support of Windows and Office, Microsoft has revealed you’ll need to upgrade to Windows 10 if you want the latest version of Office without subscribing to the company’s Office 365 service. It’s a move that’s clearly designed to push businesses that are holding off on Office 365 into subscriptions, as the standalone Office 2019 software will only be supported on Windows 10 and not Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 machines. This won’t affect Office for Mac, which is a separate product with a different release schedule. Microsoft is also altering the support lifecycle for Office 2019, so it will receive 5 years of mainstream support and then “approximately 2 years of extended support.” Office 2019 (arriving in the second half of 2018) will include the usual Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook client apps, … [Read more...] about Microsoft Office 2019 will only work on Windows 10
