Regional branches[edit]

I'm curious why Microsoft Algeria has "Microsoft" in front of it, I can understand that it could be "the introduction case" where the readers could see that this is specifically named for regional Microsoft divisions, but this would already be obvious by the fact that this is a Microsoft template, ¿or wouldn't that be obvious to everyone? If not then please ignore this post.

WP:EGG requires all links to be self-introductory; i.e. looking at the link alone, one should not mistake the article to which the link goes. Think about it: A person sees the word "Japan" linked. From the link alone, where does he think the link goes? Obviously, Japan, not Microsoft Japan. If people see a list of countries only, they think they are country links. They never click on them and they never find out why they are wrong.
I was a proponent of having "Microsoft" in all links per WP:EGG. But we ended up with a compromise that one link gets to say "Microsoft".

Regarding the current WP:SPLIT of Windows Holographic and Microsoft HoloLens, I'm not sure if the latter is a duplicate article of if the split hasn't been fully translated yet into the former and the hardware content still needs to be reduced to a mere epitome, anyhow if it's the case that the split was approved then I'd request for the Microsoft HoloLens links to link directly to the Microsoft HoloLens article.

Regarding the article as I couldn't get a response from the editors in question regarding the split I haven't taken any action on those pages yet so replacing the links might be a premature right now. (talk) 15:27, 27 March 2016 (UTC)

Please add Perceptive Pixel to "Acquisitions", a notable acquisition for being the team that developed the Microsoft Surface Hub. (talk) 09:57, 13 April 2016 (UTC)
