Microsoft's ongoing move to reposition itself as a cloud-first/mobile-first vendor continued in 2016. But readers of "All About Microsoft" here on ZDNet remained most interested in Windows 10's rollout and futures this past year.
Readers are interested in Microsoft's next moves in the Windows 10 space, with Redstone 2 (a k a the Creators Update) coming in the Spring of 2017 and Redstone 3 due in the Fall of next year.
How and when Microsoft steps back into the mobile device space remains a topic of interest, as did my decision to finally throw in the towel and leave Windows Phone for an Android device, the Nexus 6P. I continue to run many Microsoft services on my Android phone and very few Google ones.
In 2017, I'm expecting to be writing about a bunch of new Microsoft-branded hardware, more open source stories along the lines of SQL Server on Linux and definitely more than a bit about the company's doings on the machine-learning front.
Thanks for another fun and interesting year of Microsoft watching, and for all the tips, meet-ups and Twitter convos.
