Windows So, today was the big day for Microsoft. It's all or nothing. Die tot oder die gladiolen (cookie if you get that one without using Google). The software giant from Redmond officially launched its Windows Phone 7 operating system, alongside about ten handsets from different OEMs. Since Windows Phone 7 has been covered quite a lot already, leaving little to the imagination, did something actually new come out of all this? Yes, it did.

yes, it should. it's a bad translation of the dutch "de dood of de gladiolen". the dutch "de" can be "die" or "der" in german, because german has three definite articles (der,die,das) and dutch ony two (de,het). the saying doesn't exist in german, or at least it didn't.
