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.

OS X is only UNIX by luck.

If Apple had bough BeOS instead, Mac OS X surely wouldn't be UNIX.

As for refusing to work with competition, I am sure any older timer here has lots of stories since the dawn of computing about how commercial vendors work, regardless of what they sell.

Just look at Google transition, now that the shareholders have more to say in the whole process.
