And in this instance, it's TV cum PC.
What I'd like to see is Microsoft licensing an Xbox-like interface to TV manufacturers to counter Android TV.

This is awesome
But why didn't Microsoft made it first??!!
I really like the way Windows 10's progress in India !!

I have a LG smart tv with web os with followinzg hdmi connections.
1. Surface 3 pro (for pc games n adobe suute)
3. Wireless hdmi 2TB ext HDD. Purpotedly windows 10 would solve my problem of connection so many devices if it were to be OS of a TV. Once Xbox gets win10...
will distinction between PC games and Xbox games persist eternally
This just has cable ports in addition. Please correct since this looks like a ad from the company that made this tv. Btw it's a stupid idea to me to have pc cum tv. Won't it be odd or inconvenient to work in your living room pulling your chair close to tv table LOL. May be for other users who have different user case.
