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.
Hololens Buy Page vs ... Reality In Progress
So, I fell for it hook line and sinker ... got hooked and tossed up on shore to dry and die ... like a useless fish.
Note what it says for the Development Edition:
A good choice for individual developers who are ready to get started. Documentation, tutorials, and community forums are standing by to support you*.
So, I'm the individual developer. I own two hololens. One developer.
Look at my posts here ... like them or not ... zero reponses over the last ... well, many many posts.
So ... no community forum here to support ... an individual developer. Proved it. No doubts.
Some of my posts just disappear ... entirely. But ... I keep copies.
When I call into support, since the English Speaking rep Microsoft Premium 24/7 support provided to answer the phone can't understand what a 'Hololens' is, this same rep assumes I must be a prank caller, and blocks my phone number.
When I open an online case ... shut without comment.
That is my real experience with this product.
Class action? We'll see ... better start supporting your customers ... just saying.
