Windows So, after much, much speculation and many, many rumours, Microsoft finally took the wraps off Windows Phone 7 Series, its newest mobile operating system. Hold on to your hats, because uncharacteristically for the Redmond giant, they've rebuilt everything from the ground up - this system has little to no connection to the Windows Mobile of yore. I don't say this lightly - but dear lord, Windows Phone 7 Series is full of win. Update: Hands-on video from Engadget inside. Update II: There is no sync application. It's all done over-the-air, to the internet. Only videos and music are synced via the Zune software. Update III: Since I didn't mention it clearly, here it goes: Windows Phone 7 Series is a clean break. There is no backwards compatibility at all. Update IV: Channel9 has a 22-minute in-depth demonstration of Windows Phone 7 Series.

It's still only five percent of computer users worldwide. We reside on the web too much, so we get the idea the Mac is everywhere. Truth of the matter is, however, that out in the real world, Macs are rare, and while I would certainly like to see Mac support, I find it totally understandable if Microsoft won't bother spending money on only five percent of computer users.

It simply makes no sense.


Macs may be rare where you are but they are certainly everywhere that I am. I see people with them every single day. I don't have to look they are in the coffee shops, they are in the hotels I go to, they are in many of the homes I have to visit. So while it may be 5%, as was stated that is millions of macs and more every day. I agree it would be stupid if MS deliberately did not support macs. After all they do make office for Mac and that really has to be a fraction of the windows version.

I am also seeing small businesses in my area replacing there PC's with Macs. I see it all the time in my field of work. I rarely if ever see them go from Windows/Mac to Linux, it just does not happen here.
