Various Android subsystems and features have already been merged, and more will follow in the future. This will make things easier for everybody, including the Android mod community, or Linux distributions that want to support Android programs.”

The Linux team has been looking at reintroducing Android since December, after theacrimonious split in 2010.

Microsoft Cuts Down Office 365 Prices

Microsoft has taken an axe to Office 365 prices, cutting enterprise charges and giving special discounts to educational users, claiming “economies of scale” in the service.

“With these efficiencies, we’re able pass on savings to make it even more affordable for customers of all sizes to move to Office 365,” claimed Kirk Koenigsbauer, VP of Microsoft’s Office division in a blog post. “So, I’m thrilled to announce that we’re lowering the prices of most of our Office 365 for enterprise plans by up to 20 per cent. These changes are effective today at Office365.com for new and renewing direct customers. ”

The economies of scale that Koenigsbauer is claiming must be very big, indeed. According to a table posted by Microsoft partner Collabra Networks (which has since been taken down), some prices have dropped by nearly a 25 per cent, and storage costs are down 92 per cent.

Windows 8 Fails on the Desktop

A “real” user of Windows 8 confirms that it fails on desktop. With the release of Windows 8, Microsoft is attempting to change the way we interact with its operating system by introducing the Metro interface. The problem is, they aren’t just stopping at pasting a touch-friendly experience over the top of the more familiar Windows desktop.

Well, the main issue is the Start button has disappeared. Anyone using the Windows 8 Consumer Preview is either figuring out how to work around that, or Googling to find out how to re-enable it.

The thing Microsoft seem to be overlooking is the fact they already dominate in the OS market. That’s a great position to be in, but also comes with a few must-haves whenever a new version of said OS is launched. Top of that list is familiarity.

People is warned  to get their last updates in now because Microsoft has announced that it will close the application marketplace for Windows Mobile 6.x users on May 9.

“Applications and games acquired from the Windows Mobile 6.x Marketplace service installed on your Windows Mobile 6.x phone will continue to work after the service is discontinued on May 9, 2012,” said Microsoft in a letter to customers. “However, additional downloads of these applications and games from the Windows Mobile 6.x Marketplace service will no longer be available.”

Redmond also told users to back up their data as soon as possible, because if the phone loses any apps after the May cut-off data they won’t be able to get them back. Microsoft isn’t commenting further on how long it will continue to support the Mobile platform, but we’re betting that announcement will come sooner rather than later.
