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.

No OSX User will buy a device that has to work with their Macs and is made by MS. They might buy a Xbox, but on the Mac they are conditioned to avoid MS whereever they can (ActiveX, Zune, WinMo the list goes on and on)

I know no OSX user who would buy a Windows phone, no matter how advanced the UI might be.

But then again I know no OSX users that owns a Xbox, those might.


They are conditioned to avoid MS? What a load of garbage that is!

I too am an OS X user and I do have an older Win CE device that I love. I also use XP and Vista and do have an Xbox360. So you don't speak for most Mac users in my field. I Like the Mac and no one conditions me to hate anything. I like what works for me and most Mac users that I have to work with feel the same and many of them have MS products.

But, but, reading OSNews comments I always got the impression that you were good when using Linux or OSX, and bad when using Windows? And that somehow using one should trigger spontaneous spitting on the other? Was I mistaken?

Is it possible to be open minded, like the experience they each have to offer and use them for whatever task they're good at? God, my whole foundation of beliefs, crumbling...
