PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Nokia is set to market their first Windows Phone 8 hardware differently, according to a report by the Financial Times. The manufacturer will be entering into partnerships with a handful of EU carriers to exclusively launch their next generation Windows Phone. The newspaper states the company has already entered into talks with a number of operators including France Telecom." Not to be a spoilsport or anything, but doesn't carrier exclusivity kind of rely on people actually, you know, desperately wanting a certain device? It's like Nokia's executives live in this fairytale land where people are actually buying Lumias and plan their actions accordingly. It's uncanny.

Not that argument again. It's been invalid a long time, especially since distributions like Ubuntu have made it very easy to use them. People just don't believe it because they haven't even tried.

But if you don't buy that then I have another for you:

Considering how little it takes before Joe User is completely helpless even on Windows or Mac OS, I'd say it's a toss-up in that regard.
The regular user cannot fix even the simplest of issues, regardless of the OS.

And I'm not just saying that, I help people with their computer "issues" for a living.
