Windows The general gist? A minor update somewhere this year, but the real update won't come until 2014. In the meantime, we'll have to... "Resuming..." ...settle for CardDAV/CalDAV support, some additional HTML5 support, and fixes for Xbox Music metadata. We were promised regular updates and an early access program for enthusiasts - but Microsoft failed to deliver, once more. For all intents and purposes, thanks... "Resuming..." ...to the switch to the Windows NT kernel, the Windows Phone we're using today has very little additional functionality to offer over what we were using on WP7 release day. I've been a Windows Phone user since WP7 release day, but Microsoft has lost me.

Microsoft is now in a tough position, at least from a development standpoint. Their strategy has always been "good enough" and "slightly cheaper." Which rewarded them handsomely for 3 decades. Problem is that now they have to compete against other "good enough" stacks which are "free."

There is also a clear generational talent shift happening.
