microsoft decided that getting on par with KDE Connect was "bad for business"(tm)
And that's a good example why you want to use Open Source software  :)

Even an Open Source company may decide that something is not in their business interest and stop working on it, but if they have already released code, at least the community can pick up and release it on their own.

Not all Open Source companies release code for features before they are finished, though, so things like that may happen in the FOSS world as well, and we have seen features in FOSS applications or DEs - and even whole applications - die before they were even born.
The difference is that in the FOSS world most of the time these are not conscious decisions but the result of people losing interest in their projects.

Kirigami UI, KDE's user interface framework for mobile and convergent applications, which was first announced in March, is now publicly released! Kirigami UI allows Qt developers to easily create applications that run on most major mobile and desktop platforms without modification (though adapted user interfaces for different form-factors are supported and recommended for optimal user experience).
