Windows The general gist? A minor update somewhere this year, but the real update won't come until 2014. In the meantime, we'll have to... "Resuming..." ...settle for CardDAV/CalDAV support, some additional HTML5 support, and fixes for Xbox Music metadata. We were promised regular updates and an early access program for enthusiasts - but Microsoft failed to deliver, once more. For all intents and purposes, thanks... "Resuming..." ...to the switch to the Windows NT kernel, the Windows Phone we're using today has very little additional functionality to offer over what we were using on WP7 release day. I've been a Windows Phone user since WP7 release day, but Microsoft has lost me.

Exactly.

MS is by far the worst company in tech(even worse than Oracle). They do so much evil stuff everywhere on this planet (see http://techrights.org/?stories) and their technology is so crappy it wastes our resources left and right, it is hard to excuse buying their shit IMO.

Everyone who buys WP8, RT, XB1, W8 or their other crap needs to get his head checked.

Banning their products from your life, family and country is the best thing you could do.

Yeah, sure. I am a hater, but with good reasons. I have strong feelings about where society, technology, education and freedom should be in this day and age, but MS stands pretty much exactly for all the things I don't want: Collusion, bribery, lock-in, closed source, patents, aggression, spying etc.
