But you might have to learn to actually interact with your children after installing Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14367. This build removes Kids Corner from Windows 10 Mobile. This update is coming to insiders subscribed to the fast ring. These insiders get first crack at a new build, but at the risk of receiving buggy software that still needs to be worked on.
Among the long list of of changes coming to Windows 10 Mobile with this new build, is the removal of Kids Corner. Microsoft says that its usage was too low to justify wasting time and money to continue supporting and developing the feature. While not a replacement, Microsoft suggests using Apps Corner to mollify the kiddies. Go to Settings > Accounts > Apps Corner. This feature shares some functionality with Kids Corner. The phone's owner can limit the apps available for others to use, and customize a Start screen for users.

I don't want that and neither should you. Aren't you Android users a little too happy with your current market share. I mean, all of that, and OEMs make pennies on the dollar. Windows Phone has potential, and I hope they don't ruin it by sticking Android on top of it. It's not like they'd make money either way.

I do agree that Tizen has a better shot if Samsung went all in and dump Android. Samsung fanboy will be even more devoted than Apple fanboy. They can buy Samsung's vacuum cleaner to oven to disc washer to television to air-con to all sorts of gadgets. Well, Samsung big pipe dream.

Yes !! Soon they will release android for desktop !! With Office software stack !! Microsoft products are deteriorated day by day (talking with reference of windows and windows phone.) I really don't know how they are earning business by publishing mediocre software on android.

The "too little" usage is an excuse. Given the market share of windows phone, that number will no doubt be smart. Now if it had the user base of android that amount would be much larger. The removal of many unique mobile features is to make windows 10 mobile as close to the desktop variant so that extra work does not have to be done for posting features. This way you update the desktop, you're updating the mobile as well without too much extra work. They could simply enhance Apps Corner and provide the same functionality on Desktop. Especially useful on 2-in-1's where you just quickly want to let your kid play with it and no need to have all these accounts you have to manage.

Instead of releasing all these Insider Preview Builds and WP10, they should have just kept that s**t under wraps and waited a year or two for people to forget about Windows 8 Mobile, and released a Surface phone simultaneously with the Surface 5, introduced Continuum, in a huge event and advertised the crap out of it.

You know what else has been stupidly removed from Windows 10? Local Family Accounts! Microsoft is now desperate to know everything about your family and kids before you can add them as a user of the Windows 10 PC! Just an out right asinine move. Windows 8.1.1 offered a seamless and straight-forward way for adding restricted kids account without needing a privacy-invading Microsoft account. Now, that's all gone in Windows 10...f*ck you Microsoft, not gonna be telling you about every relative using my PC.

Doesn't bother me, my Lumia 1020 is sitting in my desk drawer unaware of what it wants to do with its life.
