Windows If you ever needed any proof it's anything but roses ans sunshine over at Microsoft's Windows Phone division, it's this. The next version of Windows Phone, WP8, will run on the NT kernel, which marks a pretty substantial departure from the current release. This raises the question: will current handsets be upgradeable to WP8? First, Microsoft indicated no. Then they said yes (interview retracted). And now, they're saying no again.

Never, luckily ;) I hear it isn't the best place to work.

And thanks for insinuating I'm a MS shrill because I happen to like one of their products ;) I'm typing this on my T60 running FC16... so... yeah.

Come on, I was having a bit of fun with you, thats all. But, if you look around, there IS a LOT of astroturfing going on from Microsoft in the various forums.

How Desktop agnostic is Windows Phone 7? Does it mount as a USB drive? Are the music files sanely stored with the same file names before you transferred, or do they end up with random numerical names?
