No Windows 10 for Nokia Lumia 2520

Nokia Lumia 2520 is a very nice tablet IMHO. I've been thinking of buying one. There are some available at local flea market on the Internet. Today's news told you can't update 2520. There will be no Windows 10 for Nokia Lumia 2520 tablet.

How come? Why is that? Well, Nokia Lumia 2520 has ARM processor inside (like Microsoft Surface 2). Microsoft is not supporting this kind of hardware anymore but only tablets with Intel x86 processor (like Surface 3).

This is something everyone could see before it happened. I find it sort of ridiculous somehow. How come Microsoft was not able to tell us customers which platforms it is going to support and which not? I will NOT forget this! At least 2520 should be open for for example Linux-based tablet operating systems. We are wasting hardware.

Why not continue with Windows RT? It's not an option! If you have a brand new tablet at least one *bigger* update is expected to happen. Now it won't. Microsoft is indeed digging it's own grave.
