Speaking at Microsoft's financial analysts meeting today, CEO Steve Ballmer was refreshingly realistic about the company's struggles in smartphones and tablets. "Mobile devices. We have almost no share."

Right. Now that Ballmer himself admits it, can we please settle the discussion? Windows Phone has been a failure up until now.

If you honestly believe that, then you aren't very experienced with other platforms and their available tools.

Microsoft's inability to follow standards and give developers the API:s they want is also hinders them from gaining more market. OpenGL ES 2 is one of those API:s.

The .net and Visual Studio simply destroy Android tools and XCode by a wide margin. The only people who think otherwise are inexperienced devs. However developers work with what they know, and that is the best tool for them.
