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.

Nokia must be furious. So many will now not buy a Limia.
MS should have had no comment on this until say a month before the release of Win 8 phone.
Good social responsibility decisions to say now, but very stupid business wise.
So maybe MS not so bad after all.
