Windows You can say what you will about Windows Phone and Windows 8's Metro interface (I refuse to drop that name) - it's inefficient, unpopular, cumbersome, beautiful, ugly, organised, clean, limiting - but there's one thing we can all agree on: it's unique and distinctive. CNet has published a profile of Microsoft's Albert Shum, the man behind Metro, and he highlights what I think is at the very core of Microsoft's problems in mobile right now.

"childhood in the 90s" Well that puts you in a recent tech generation. My parents had their childhood in the 90s, they had to replace a laptop that recently broke and all I hear from them is bad bad bad about metro.
