Windows So, after much, much speculation and many, many rumours, Microsoft finally took the wraps off Windows Phone 7 Series, its newest mobile operating system. Hold on to your hats, because uncharacteristically for the Redmond giant, they've rebuilt everything from the ground up - this system has little to no connection to the Windows Mobile of yore. I don't say this lightly - but dear lord, Windows Phone 7 Series is full of win. Update: Hands-on video from Engadget inside. Update II: There is no sync application. It's all done over-the-air, to the internet. Only videos and music are synced via the Zune software. Update III: Since I didn't mention it clearly, here it goes: Windows Phone 7 Series is a clean break. There is no backwards compatibility at all. Update IV: Channel9 has a 22-minute in-depth demonstration of Windows Phone 7 Series.

Truth of the matter is, however, that out in the real world, Macs are rare..


Are they? I commute in to London every day by train (~1 hour) and see loads of Thinkpads (work issued), a lot of Sony, loads of Netbooks (usually being used to watch movies), and at least 3 or 4 Mac's a week. Not the same people either. Some are as old at Ti/Alu Powerbooks, some are Macbook Pro's, but a lot are white plastic Macbooks. I would say, ~60% of the machines I see are Windows fullsized laptops, ~30% are small laptops or netbooks, the of the rest, at least ~10% are Apple and the odd Linux (pretty rare.)

Compare this with 2 years ago when I started commuting... there were no Macs what so ever.
