We can get into all sorts of pedantic definitions of what a kernel is or constitutes. But from the points of view of the end user and developer, Microsoft has released 3 different somewhat incompatible phone OSs in less than 4 years.

That the last iteration of incompatibility is due to different kernel families involved, an event that apparently only happens "once in a lifetime," becomes sort of moot.
