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.

People overlook the insane amount of innovation going on in many parts of Microsoft,

Microsoft innovation usually means piling layers upon layers of stuff. And even then the result is often a "me too" product that only signals customers that Microsoft still exists.

they have a chokehold on the enterprise sector.

Whoever is able to in the enterprise sector, already works on a plan B for a future without Microsoft. Their partners are defecting left and right. The poor chaps who are locked into Microsoft products and have no choice are milked dry to keep the profits up.[1]
