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.

I use Microsoft technologies for a living, I witness the innovations coming out of DevDiv first hand.


I also use Microsoft technologies for a living and I think you're one of the worst shills on the internet.

Here is one of DevDivs's recent amazing innovations:

Forced B&W icons with no option for color. Amazing!

My coworkers are simply amazed by the genius work that comes out of Microsoft these days.

NEW FEATURE: NO MORE COLOR!!!!!

Truly amazing stuff.

While you conveniently ignore practically everything else they've done, I'm sure you, being a Microsoft Partner and all, know that DevDiv consists of more than icons in Visual Studio.

Moron.

Morons are people that needlessly remove color from icons despite overwhelming negative feedback from paying customers.

Total morons are people that defend such decisions.

Do you have a defense for removing color? If they change their position as they did with the Xbox One, Windows 8 and WPF fonts, are you going to defend those decisions as well or stick to your original shilling position? You do see the conundrum here, right? Does it bother you when Microsoft changes positions that you so desperately defend even against majority opinion of paying customers?
