Do you mind if I use this in discussions I have with marketing folk about the need to be accurate when talking with developers?

WRT to the other questions:

Does it matter? Anything that moves us, even incrementally, towards a model where our apps work on all devices is a Good Thing. I don't care if it's not perfect. I'm just amazed that in 2019 we still have to write an app for Windows, then an app for Android and for iOS. The best answer to all of this is Xamarin or Javascript based apps. Javascript.

Bring on Windows 10X. I don't care if they paint if purple. Just fix this pointless duality.
