PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Nokia is set to market their first Windows Phone 8 hardware differently, according to a report by the Financial Times. The manufacturer will be entering into partnerships with a handful of EU carriers to exclusively launch their next generation Windows Phone. The newspaper states the company has already entered into talks with a number of operators including France Telecom." Not to be a spoilsport or anything, but doesn't carrier exclusivity kind of rely on people actually, you know, desperately wanting a certain device? It's like Nokia's executives live in this fairytale land where people are actually buying Lumias and plan their actions accordingly. It's uncanny.

No I skimmed it.

So you are honestly telling me you think that telling people where to point and what buttons to press is as difficult as some Linux cli commands (you know lots of typing and they have to be quite precise)?

*sigh*

What I'm telling you is that:

1. Most regular desktop users will _never_ have to touch the cli.
2. Most regular desktop users have dificulty with _any_ problem or issue, no matter how simple and no matter which OS it's on.

How hard is that for you to understand?

Yes but in Linux if there is a problem 99 times out of a 100 it needs to be fix with a set of terminal commands.

If you are denying this, then as far as I am concerned you are an idiot.
