Windows Fascinating, this. As a Windows Phone 7 user, I can attest that it is every bit as good as iOS and Android - heck, in my experience, it is more polished, more consistent, smoother, and faster than either of those two. Yet, despite raving reviews and glowing user comments all over the web, Windows Phone 7 simply isn't selling. Former Windows Phone 7 general manager Charlie Kindel believes it's because neither carriers nor device makers like the control Microsoft exerts over the platform.

The reason I'm not a fan is the inferior user experience and the arcane administration (compared to unix systems). Not an MS hater, just haven't thought any of their products were compelling enough to use.

I will say that I absolutely hate the interface of the Xbox 360. The PS3 has a clean, easy to use interface. The 360 user experience is a mess.

God I hate the PS3 interface. Inconsistent, disorganised, hard to navigate, and totally not designed as a 3m interface. I can never find anything on the PS3.

and the unintuitive hierarchy of the 360 os represents a better user experience to you? This is why MS is still in business, because a lot of people just don't seem to care.
