Windows There's been a bunch of Windows Phone 7 reviews out there, and most of them come to the same conclusion: great piece of software for a 1.0 release, but it does miss a few vital features. The Ars Technica review, as usual very in-depth, highlights one particular aspect of the platform that speaks to me: Windows Phone 7 has a sense of humour.

So let me see if I've got this straight.

1. Portrait is good for some uses.
2. Landscape is good for some uses.
3. Based upon premises 1 and 2, it's therefore okay for 7 Phone to provide second-rate landscape support?

As for your wide screen laptop, if you feel compelled to maximise every window, there's really nothing left to say.

Although I agree with you about multi-column lists. I really wish more apps supported a layout like the ls command, where you read down each column alphabetically, rather than zig-zagging across. I keep my thunar windows no more than 240 pixels wide to avoid the brain strain. Unfortunately, the Control Panel explorer window resizes itself the moment you enter on of it's configuration dialogues (or at least the ones that open in the same explorer window) and it provides no 'details' view mode, like normal explorer windows.
