Windows You can say what you will about Windows Phone and Windows 8's Metro interface (I refuse to drop that name) - it's inefficient, unpopular, cumbersome, beautiful, ugly, organised, clean, limiting - but there's one thing we can all agree on: it's unique and distinctive. CNet has published a profile of Microsoft's Albert Shum, the man behind Metro, and he highlights what I think is at the very core of Microsoft's problems in mobile right now.

There's no evidence to suggest that the handful of people that actually do buy MS phones don't like them.

Hard numbers are difficult to find because Microsoft does not disclose them. But it seems generally agreed upon that one metric (return rates) is not favorable towards Windows Phone.
