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.

To be fair, I think the performance of Nokia's management team has been disastrous. And I'm quite certain that I wouldn't enjoy any social interaction with that Ballmer fellow. But at the end of the day, the main metric to judge the performance of a publicly traded for profit corporation is their finances.

For the majority of the past decade and a half Microsoft has experienced consistent returns and growth. Yes, they have taken some hits on their profit in the past couple of years. But if anyone is trying to spin a set of actions that still lead to a margin of over 75% as reason for gloom and doom. Then they either are off their meds or don't have the slightest understanding of the financial context involved.

This to say, that even though I don't like Microsoft's consumer products at a personal level, I am not deluded as to assume my biases dictate reality.
