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.

People overlook it because we never get to see it. All we see is "forced" updates to software, and expensive software lock-in schemes. I use Microsoft products for work too, in addition to Autodesk, which is arguably worse. We wanted to use an workstation to speed up older computers in the shop, but it would have been thousands of dollars in software just because of Microsoft Office and Autodesk software requiring expensive software on top of that. Somehow to use a free piece of software and software we already license it would require $4000 in more licenses.

So whatever innovation Microsoft is making, goes unseen to most because we never see it.
