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.

Furthermore, given the melodramatics of your argument, I'll also assume you are not acquainted with Microsoft's financial performance in the past decade or so.


I am acquainted but that is unneeded when judging Ballmer.

Ballmer gets the final say and everything they have released in the last 3 years spells incompetence.

The stock is only up recently because an activist shareholder took an interest. That basically means a shark is swimming around the boat and Wall St. is hoping for blood.

But I can talk all day on Microsoft's financials if you'd like. I can also talk about why I think Ballmer is the worst CEO in America. I'm also a Microsoft Partner and I can prove that if anyone would like.

Being a Microsoft Partner means you went online and filled out a form. Just saying. Lol.

What you think they approve anyone? Fill it out and tell them you run a lemonade stand. Let's see how that goes.
