Windows So, last night, Windows Phone 8 got its first update - specifically for the HTC 8X. In this day and age, where iOS is the gold standard and shows the industry how it ought to be done, and Android is the exact opposite, Windows Phone 7 was a bit of an in-between - every phone got every update, but the staggered rollout was slow and frustrating, often due to carrier meddling. How will Windows Phone 8 fare?

Are you so into MS that you cannot differentiate between 7.8 and 8?

Can you differentiate between them? Or point out concrete differences in their API subsets that would make maintaining two versions difficult?

Hint: I maintain a shared codebase between WP7, WP8, and Windows 8. All without a hitch, which is my entire point in that the fact that WP7 devices won't get WP8 has mitigating factors.

Of course, it's much easier to brush it off as me being a shill, as if what I did was much more than just correcting a few people on their facts.

I'm sorry that me telling people to actually speak truthfully is me shilling for MS.
