Windows This intrigued me. I decided to see what would happen if you plug a Windows Phone 7.5 device - my HTC HD7 in this case - into a Windows 8 machine (the release preview). The answer? Nothing happens. If you combine Microsoft's prime desktop operating system and prime mobile offering, nothing happens. No dialogs, no sync options, no check for updates, no backups, no audio/video transfer, not even a mount or a dialog to download Zune. They've got only a few months to address this.

Why would they support a legacy device like Windows Phone 7?

It's not like anyone they care about depends on WP7 phones looking good.

Why do you want that...

Meanwhile, the drama is just about non-issue of non-final OS. And WP7 will very much live on, on lower-cost devices (with continued support, just not by some complex native games essentially - which wouldn't really run on their basic hardware, anyway)
