Windows So, Windows Phone 7.5. I love it - warts and all. It has its issues, but it's so distinctive and fun it's pretty hard to not like it. So, for me, those three other people, and that cow, Microsoft today announced Windows Phone 8. It brings lots of cool new features, is built upon the Windows NT kernel and shares much of its lower levels with Windows 8, and oh, not a single current Windows Phone 7 device will be upgraded to it.

"Apple and iOS 6 Starter Edition, iOS6 Home Edition, iOS6 Professional Edition, and iOS6 Ultimate

did I miss something?

Just like Microsoft does with Windows, Apple has created several different versions of iOS6, with key features removed from all of them except one. Unlike Microsoft, Apple tries to be sneaky about this by explaining it in the small letters.

So, since Apple refuses to properly name the different versions - something that would net Microsoft a whole lot of deserved criticism, but Apple is let off the hook for some reason - I decided to do so myself. I figured the monikers Starter, Home, Professional and Ultimate are pretty self-explanatory.
