Windows Later this month, Microsoft will most likely unveil Windows Mobile 7 Windows Phone 7 at the Mobile World Congress. Rumours abound, and the latest set of rumours paint a rather dramatic turnaround for Microsoft's mobile platform - no more multitasking, application distribution limited to official channels, and a whole lot more.

Sometimes I wish Microsoft would get further into hardware. I love my Microsoft mouse, and I have several Microsoft Wireless cards - they work well under Linux and BSD (and Windows 7, even though they are old). I've heard good things about the Zune, and the 360 is very popular.
Microsoft keyboards and mice are pretty good, but MS doesn't actually make those... The 360 has well-known problems ("red ring of death", where it overheats and dies, often with ordinary usage), I'm on my second one now, and the average failure rate of the 360 is over 40%.
