Windows A few days ago, Microsoft released the long-awaited Windows Phone 7.8 update for all those users who will be stuck on Windows Phone 7 forever because there's no upgrade path to Windows Phone 8 other than buying a new phone. Now that it's here, what, exactly, does WP7.8 to the table?

No confidence

I'm in the market for a smartphone. I loved meego and even after the whole Nokia deal, and being a linux fan, I was still willing to give WP8 a shot because of how unique it was.

Not anymore.

This fiasco has left me with zero confidence that Microsoft will deliver on their promises for windows phone, or that a WP8 will get updated to WP9 in the future. It's like they don't even care what the hell happens to Windows Phone users. They don't seem to treat users as customers, only OEMs as customers.

It's a shame really, I'm in the market for a smartphone and I don't like android or iOS. (I don't mind android but nor do I like it). My only other option now is Blackberry 10, (or maybe I'll get a Nexus 4, I'll wait and see how it plays out). But either way, Microsoft just lost out on a potential customer.
