PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Ah, Windows Mobile 7. For once, Microsoft decides to be tight-lipped about an upcoming product, not saying a thing about it anywhere, and right then, of course, the rumours start to run rampant. You think the Apple tablet stuff was too much to bear? Trust me - the Windows Mobile rumours are much worse.

If you were a developer you would know why. If a company provides an excellent development environment (Visual Studio) or a way to do something that can't be done in any other way (Flash, when it came out) that can have a pretty big effect verses the "use open standards" argument. If a developer can develop something in an hour in a closed standard or in 9 hours in an open standard... well, you get my point.
