Microsoft should have been the first smartphone giant. Now, it's a joke

Things improved somewhat with Windows 10 Mobile, but upgrades only came to select phones. Steve Ballmer, Microsoft's maverick former chief executive, famously laughed at the iPhone during a 2007 interview, saying there was "no chance that the iPhone is going to get any significant market share". Analysts are claiming that the tech company's plan for its phone would be in the form of a Surface device.

"We are excited to release Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 16241 for PC to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring", Microsoft's Dona Sarkar notes.

Farewell then, to Windows Phone, Microsoft's answer to the iPhone's iOS operating system, as Microsoft quietly pulled the plug on its support life line earlier the week.

If a user attempts to update to the latest OS build on a device that has.NET Framework 3.5 installed, the update may fail because of a side-by-side (SXS) assembly missing error (0x80073701), and the device will roll back to the previous build. To work around this issue, uninstall.NET Framework 3.5, perform the OS update, and then reinstall.NET Framework 3.5.

The most improvements came to Windows Mixed Reality.

Also, you will likely need a new Server key after you install the build. Microsoft is providing two tokens that are good for unlimited activation.

You can even turn the flat picture into a sticker or wrap it onto a 3D object.

The reason for the shift is obvious.

Microsoft introduced something special for Edge as well, as all of the browser's web page titles and components are listed now in the Task Manager (instead of listing them all as Microsoft Edge).

For the first time, Android recently bested Windows as the world's most popular operating system. Now, you can manage that data.

Microsoft includes support for some fun in the latest build, too.

Timeline was announced at Build 2017 in May, during a demo that was all about the Fall Creators Update. The facility was integral in acquiring the technology in developing the Surface Hub and was owned by Perceptive Pixel Inc. which Microsoft acquired. In the case of My People, that was cut from the Creators Update that launched in April; users can expect to see it officially launch in the Fall Creators Update in October. The font is at the center of an ongoing investigation in the tracing of PM Nawaz Shariff and his daughter Maryam's overseas properties and accounts, which is rooted in the historic Panama Papers leak. This results in questioning the use of an unknown font like Calibri in official documents.

Of course, this should come as no surprise to watchers of Microsoft, who've seen its mobile ambitions shrivel in recent years. More updates coming to this front soon.
