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.

MS write Office for the Mac, why would they bother to write an entire Office suite (it's not a straight port) for a small market?

Have you ever actually used Mac software from Microsoft?
I've used Office:mac X, 2004, and 2008.
Not only are its apps buggy and super slow, the development is slow as well. For the longest time Office:mac wasn't even capable to read Unicode! Office:mac itself also wasn't able to read and write OOXML files (NeoOffice was).
After all those years Microsoft Messenger is still not capable of AV chat!

I think this phone will be supported on the Mac.

Just like Zune? Oh, wait... Zune isn't supported.
