Windows There's been a bunch of Windows Phone 7 reviews out there, and most of them come to the same conclusion: great piece of software for a 1.0 release, but it does miss a few vital features. The Ars Technica review, as usual very in-depth, highlights one particular aspect of the platform that speaks to me: Windows Phone 7 has a sense of humour.

A great example of this is the Silverlight Toolkit. They ported it nearly completely to Windows Phone 7, merely stubbing out things that differed between the Desktop and the Phone (#ifdef WINDOWSPHONE7, lol)

It would be nice if you gave specifics, like a webpage from Microsoft, instead of snide comments with zero content.

I wasn't trying to be snide, I was agreeing with you. There's an immense amount of codesharing that's now possible, and it's impressive.

But either way, here's a link showing what I'm talking about:
