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 did not mean to imply that Nokia's leadership issues are recent, they have been a badly managed company for the better part of the last decade. Their current directorship are yet another continuation of a trend of bad management. But it is not my company to manage, so whatever.

As I said, I personally don't care for many (most) of Microsoft's products or technologies. So I'm not that emotionally vested in their well being, much less their success. But the point remains; Ballmer still runs one of the most profitable corporations out there, even if I find what the guy stands for abhorrent.
