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..." 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.

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

I don't know how the eff this got a score of 5, but if you use desktop Windows AS A PROGRAM LAUNCHER and don't use any of the mediocre bundled apps, Windows is open enough for us Average Joes that make up the 99%, and has a really wide variety of software. Which is what matters really.

Windows Phone... Who cares? They dropped the ball with the WP7 -> WP8 transition by banning upgrades to WP8 even if the OEM wanted to release an upgrade for a phone. For example the Galaxy SII got ICS, Samsung WP7 phones didn't got WP8. Even if they give free upgrades to whatever the next major version after WP8 is, it would be too late, as the OS war would be over by then. Windows Phone had one card, upgrades, and burned it. Nobody cares about it, almost got duped into getting one personally but fortunately didn't.
