Windows Fascinating, this. As a Windows Phone 7 user, I can attest that it is every bit as good as iOS and Android - heck, in my experience, it is more polished, more consistent, smoother, and faster than either of those two. Yet, despite raving reviews and glowing user comments all over the web, Windows Phone 7 simply isn't selling. Former Windows Phone 7 general manager Charlie Kindel believes it's because neither carriers nor device makers like the control Microsoft exerts over the platform.

All I can say is that I clearly understand why people do not like it. There is no conspiracy required. If other people like me, why not, really? I just hate the interface. No, I do not own device. Why would I? I've tried using it, read a lot, I was looking at the screenshots, I was reading positive reviews, etc. It is possible to use, if I would force to, but I have an opinion: I hate it.

The same will be about Windows 8, I expect. The apps in preview looks awful.
