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?

Switching kernels is a once in a lifetime thing. There is no reason for anyone who is even a little informed about this OS to think the same kind of thing would happen again. As a former WP 7.5 user I can understand why some people may be upset, but its time to let this go. Microsoft is not the first company to ever have to make a difficult decision to move their OS forward and leave some things behind. Moving to the NT kernel is what will ensure Windows Phone's future and Microsoft is guaranteeing at least 18 months of support/updates on any of these devices from here on out. That should be more than enough as very few people keep their phones beyond 2 years when they are eligible for an upgrade anyway.
