Evleaks knows something mind-blowing about Microsoft and/or Windows, but he won't tell
When leakster extraordinaire Evan Blass speaks, we listen. As he has a better than average track record, many of the leaks and info he spills turn out to be the real deal. That's one of the reasons why one of Mr. Blass' most recent tweets has certainly sparked our attention. Not only because it reveals some saucy new rumor or leak, but due to the lack of any specific info. Blass' original tweet says "I know something that's going to blow your minds, Windows faithful", and this is undoubtedly as mysterious as it gets!

We can come up with  a couple of theories based on @evleaks' enigmatic message. First of all, @evleaks once again reminds us that he might have better inside information than all of us, as we've hardly heard anything "mind-blowing" about Microsoft's plans recently. 

Secondly, and we're venturing into the realm of speculations here, Microsoft is attending MWC 2016 - call it wishful thinking at best, but we feel if any light will be ever shed on said Windows-related "mind-blowing" fact, it might happen during Redmond's endeavors at MWC 2016.

No, we're not expecting a new Windows 10 flagship smartphone, as the Lumia 950/950 XL got launched not that long ago, and @evleaks' tweet doesn't exactly sound like a regular device leak. On the contrary, we feel like something way more interesting is going on behind the scenes, and we certainly can't wait for more info on the matter...

Still, if Evan Blass knows something about that Surface Phone, we'd love to listen!

If they're not announcing Windows on ARM CPUs I'm not interested.

Windows exists on ARM, it's called Windows RT. It's relatively pointless, because while Windows itself can run on ARM, 95% of actual programs written for Windows will not. New programs/programs that still see frequent updates may run on an ARM port of Windows, but legacy programs- such as a game like Morrowind- wouldn't work, and the vast majority of things won't ever see an update to run on ARM

They already promised Windows on Raspberry Pi but all they gave is Windows IOT which means nothing to most.

Windows on ARM with legacy Win32 programs compatibility! Would be awesome if that happens somehow!

Because specs dictate performance right? It's never like that, think about it, just because you have a small guy doesn't mean you can't deliver, same concept applies, it's not about the size but how you use it.

It's not the size of the dog in the fight. It's the size of the fight in the dog.

Invading user privacy as bad as Google?

Neh, apple already does a much worse job at that by being less transparent about what their services do as you use them...nothing mind blowing about just doing it as bad as google.

It sucks that every company nowadays are jumping on this spying bandwagon. No privacy anymore unless your cut your internet connection altogether. And the governments of most maybe all countries, instead of protecting user data, are the biggest privacy invaders themselves.

You don't get what you want for free without paying the price of privacy...deal with it.

Or go back to the old days of paying 120+ for windows software etc.

HoloLens, that's why it would be mind-blowing...

That's the only thing it could be...but we already know almost everything about it. Maybe we're finally getting a price and release date.

May be Microsoft is closing their phone business, that is definitely mind blowing.

Why do all people want Windows Mobile OS to die and Microsoft to jump to Android? Competition is best for us users. Gives us more choice.
