    i think they can put a limitation/restriction on hours or frequency of usage of premium features. But most of them should be available to all users. I am glad that good stuff like one note is free. and Adobe too has a pretty functional version of pdf free. Infacrthey can put up onetime fee for usage of a premium features. For example, i do not have any problem for paying, Adobe per page for indexing or ocr services. But they want me to buy a whole month or year of creative cloud subscription.

    As a result, if i want to OCR these 600 pages for one single time. Just one single premium feature which i want to buy just once, for that they want me to buy a combined subscription of AcrobatDC, photoshop, light room, and what not. that doesn't even make sense. Also, if the only premium feature that i use often is OCR, then allow me to but a monthly/Yearly subscription of OCR capability alone.

    My first experience with Windows in a while (8 years) has shown me that WRT Microsoft gear, upgrading their pen tech is the least of their worries. The OS itself is a giant heaping dungheap. The underlying design ethos for the OS is sound, but the execution is woefully bad, and the bloat is unbelievable. Their inability to get a simple thing like sleep mode right is emblematic of the problem with their OS as a whole. Needs a complete lean-and-mean rewrite from the ground up.

    I think it's their bussiness/enterprise customers who are keeping them from Software progress on the OS. I dont blame them, they havevtried i twice, Windows RT and then Windows 10s. I wish i can simply simply say that they were ahead of their time, but thatbwont be true, as Windows 10S is a recent phenomenon. They simply have an ancient code that is resource consuming. And only a rewrite can solve it.

    Still that's no excuse for bad pen technology, they are not even in the same department, they probably have seperate fundings. Microsoft gas bought and let go of companies like Nokia before. They can do same with the NTrig. All that Microsoft pen protocol stuff that's all #$$@#, if ur pen is bad.

    Samsung Software is criticised so much for bloatware, but bad OS, doesnot stop them from making the best hardware in the world. Microsoft just has no excuse for their bad pens and flickering screens. I do not even mind their flickering screens. I just want a workable pen.

    Those who need a pen based phones have no option but to buy Note8 despite it's bad software. Microsoft does not need to make the complete best allrounder product. All they need is a product that is indispensable and irreplacable for many, despite it's flaws. None of the Surface device have offered that, for many years Windows was the only product that was that product, But now it's not. Not even for bussiness. When IBM changes to MacOS that is an statement in itself.
