We have decided to phase out the Mixed Reality Forums over the next few months in favor of other ways to connect with us.
The first way we want to connect with you is our mixed reality developer program, which you can sign up for at https://aka.ms/IWantMR.
The plan between now and the beginning of May is to clean up old, unanswered questions that are no longer relevant. The forums will remain open and usable.
On May 1st we will be locking the forums to new posts and replies. They will remain available for another three months for the purposes of searching them, and then they will be closed altogether on August 1st.
So, where does that leave our awesome community to ask questions? Well, there are a few places we want to engage with you. For technical questions, please use Stack Overflow, and tag your questions using either hololens or windows-mixed-reality. If you want to join in discussions, please do so in the HoloDevelopers Slack, which you can join by going to https://aka.ms/holodevelopers. And always feel free to hit us up on Twitter @MxdRealityDev.
Microsoft claims ... or Microsoft lies ... I guess it's your viewpoint
On the page where Microsoft lists the Hololens for sale ... https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/hololens/buy
A good choice for individual developers who are ready to get started. Documentation, tutorials, and community forums are standing by to support you*.
Well, my experience with this community forum ... is it sucks. Totally.
Having bought two hololens for my one person company ... i.e., the INDIVIDUAL DEVELOPER ... there in the primary description ... WHO CAME HERE TO THE COMMUNITY FORUMS ... and TRIED, TRIED, TRIED ... really, go read all the stuff I wrote ... HERE IS MY REAL EXPERIENCE.
I've got a unique software product that can affect everyone positively. And well ... NOTHING.
That is the support I got ... and wow, 3 stars for utekai ... worth about a load of SNOT.
Thanks for nothing Microsoft.
