Windows Microsoft's Terry Myerson, corporate vice president of Windows Phone, talks about the competition. "With iPhone, I sense that it's running out of steam.

I understand you point, I just don't think measuring the success of a desktop operating system compared to a mobile operating system is a fair and valid comparision.

Lets not forget Vista came out years before Smart Phones started becoming popular (I think the iPhone 1 came out afterwards).

But hey call it cognitive dissonance to make yourself sound big and clever.
