Microsoft Microsoft's response to Apple's win is probably the most cringeworthy of all. Blatantly admitting Windows Phone can't make a dent in the market on merit, but instead requires the court room to do so, Bill Cox, senior director of Windows Phone marketing communications, said: "Windows Phone is looking gooooood right now." Nauseating.

It is only fair that Microsoft should get its day in the sun. Unlike Google they went back to the drawing board and made something new. Good for Microsoft.
I still hope they don't become dominant, though. They become complacent when they are dominant (see Windows, Office, Xbox).

What are you talking about?

With Windows, they are dominant since 3.1 ...and in the two decades since, it greatly improved, is now even better choice that it was back then (oh, because it won due to being simply the best out of all not-great choices: http://www.osnews.com/thread?522221 ).

Xbox? What, you mean you didn't even notice Kinect? (and generally seemingly the most lively, most vigorous platform)

Office - the nice improvement of Ribbon, even thought they didn't have to, even though some people grumbled against innovation.

About the only major example of complacency is IE6 (not the earlier versions, pre-IE6 it improved rapidly, became better than Netscape) - but also largely due to corps who didn't bother to upgrade.
