SSuite Office's Official Statement Of Intent

Posted on February 8, 2017 at 5:30 AM

Here below follows our official statement of intent when it comes to our software development philosophy...


We do not support DotNet

We do not support Java

We do not support Windows RT

We do not support, and never will, the new Windows UWP - Universal Windows Platform


The new UWP apps is just another attempt to force people into vendor-lockin as these software apps will only be available through the Windows App store and also at a price. You will also not be able to use WIN32 applications on the new Windows 10 Cloud version. If you wish to do so, you will be asked to upgrade to Windows 10 Pro for a price.


Just for your information, the new Universal Windows Platform is just a reworked Windows RT operating system in disguise!


We are fixed and dedicated to the development of free and standalone binary software applications created for the WIN32 API platform. { Windows Applications Programming Interface }  That is ALL, x86 WIN32,  Windows 95 / 98SE / NT / 2000 / Vista / 7 / 8 / 8.1 / 10


We hereby confirm our support for the Windows x86 WIN32 platform. Now and forever!!!

What's the harm in learning new APIs?
You complain about vendor lock-in with Windows UWP, but sing the praises of Win32, aren't you already "vendor-locked" when supporting only Win32?

It sounds like somebody doesn't want to learn more about the craft...

Thank you very much for the response on my blog post.

As for supporting WIN32, it is a completely open architecture and platform. Since Linux is now also capable of running WIN32 applications with the help of WINE, I would say that there is no vender-lockin at all.

I am able to create and distribute any WIN32 application or software program on the internet without the permission of Microsoft.

Although recently Microsoft has announced that this also will come to an end with a new kill switch that is to be included in the latest Windows 10 update.

At first this option will be a user's choice, later on this switch will be enabled by default, then somewhere in the future this will be completely on with no user interaction allowed.

But I digress...

Microsoft's UWP has been created from the start to enable user Vendor-lock-in. All applications and software on this platform will only be available from Microsoft's App Store. No single developer will be allowed to create, distribute, and install any UWP software outside of Microsoft's App store. So this makes it a completely dead platform, as they tried this with Windows RT before and it also tanked heavily.

MediaTek, a major Microsoft Partner, has yesterday refused to support the new Windows ARM operating system, which is based on the new Windows UWP system.

See the following link:

-because-it-s-a-risky-idea-513436.shtml

I would say that WIN32 is the last open and completely free platform on the internet that allows anyone to create an application or software program and distribute and install it without any special permission from Microsoft or any overlords...
