Microsoft Criticizes Android Updates

Microsoft’s Windows chief, Terry Myerson, hold nothing back against Android. Speaking during the Ignite conference in Chicago, Terry Myreson criticizes Android updates. He said:

[pull_quote_center]”Google ships a big pile of… code, with no commitment to update your device. Google takes no responsibility to update customer devices and refuses to take responsibility to update their devices, leaving end users and businesses increasingly exposed every day they use an Android device.”[/pull_quote_center]

While everything he said is true, is it any less true for Windows Phone. Myerson was speedy to blow Android, he didn’t really reveal how Microsoft plans to sidestep carriers and provide users regular updates to its Windows 10 cell phones in future. There were no updates from Windows Phone 7 to Windows Phone 8 and those users who are stuck with Windows RT won’t get an update to windows 10 in the future.

Microsoft might not have a perfect history for its upgrades, but it’s planning to overcome this issue to some extent with Windows 10. Microsoft will continue to deliver updates to Windows 10 in the form of distribution rings. Microsoft introduced the concept of slow and fast rings letting users to get the latest bits and other users to wait for stable releases without any bugs.
