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.

No OSX User will buy a device that has to work with their Macs and is made by MS. They might buy a Xbox, but on the Mac they are conditioned to avoid MS whereever they can (ActiveX, Zune, WinMo the list goes on and on)

I know no OSX user who would buy a Windows phone, no matter how advanced the UI might be.

But then again I know no OSX users that owns a Xbox, those might.

They are conditioned to avoid MS? What a load of garbage that is!

I too am an OS X user and I do have an older Win CE device that I love. I also use XP and Vista and do have an Xbox360. So you don't speak for most Mac users in my field. I Like the Mac and no one conditions me to hate anything. I like what works for me and most Mac users that I have to work with feel the same and many of them have MS products.
