Windows So, Windows Phone 7.5. I love it - warts and all. It has its issues, but it's so distinctive and fun it's pretty hard to not like it. So, for me, those three other people, and that cow, Microsoft today announced Windows Phone 8. It brings lots of cool new features, is built upon the Windows NT kernel and shares much of its lower levels with Windows 8, and oh, not a single current Windows Phone 7 device will be upgraded to it.

I'm talking about Microsoft as in, with regular Windows.

The Windows Phone 8 thing is just pure shit, as I clearly stated in the article.

Fair enough. But if we think a bit about the target-audience that really knows that there are different Windows flavors and that know what those differences are, then we may agree its more the geek then the joe user. Those geeks do not really read the manual (means whats printed in smaller letters at the box) anyways cause its not there main source of informations for such things. So I think it makes no difference how offensive Windows vs Apple are on that. Those who need to know will know independent of the prints on the box-version which are very less informative in both, Windows and Apple, cases anyways.

Seriously, who offers software upgrades for a major release like this? Neither Apple nor Google does. Are you one of those people who expects software vendors to backward support your device forever? I'd like to know -- it would help me understand where you're coming from, and make it easier to disregard anything you say from now on...
