Windows Microsoft's Terry Myerson, corporate vice president of Windows Phone, talks about the competition. "With iPhone, I sense that it's running out of steam. With iOS, [Apple] just added a fifth row of icons. Android is... kind of a mess. Look at Samsung - there's clearly mutiny going on. The only OEM making money off of Android is Samsung." There's truth to all these statements, which makes it all the more surprising that Microsoft appears to be unable to properly capitalise on them. Sure, WP appears to be doing well in a few select markets, but by no means the kind of success Microsoft and (Nokia) was banking on. Microsoft will pull through. Nokia on the other hand...

Windows 7 would have sold tens of millions during the same period and they wouldn't have had to waste billions of dollars.

Windows 8 has poor reviews compared to 7 and is selling worse than Vista did during the same release period. It's a dud but if you want to play the denial game along with Ballmer then go ahead, you clearly have no shame when it comes to being a Microsoft apologist.

BTW I still haven't met a single .NET developer that has anything positive to say about Windows 8. But I'm sure you will write that off in your mind as not mattering just as Sinofsky did when we pointed out all the negative pre-polls.

The only reason Ballmer still has a job is because he can point to the billions of dollars that come in even though a monkey could run that company thanks to the market lock that Gates created. Oh well you probably have defense work to do here, I shouldn't take up your time.
