Microsoft is talking to HTC about adding its Windows operating system to HTC's Android-based smartphones at little or no cost, people with knowledge of the matter said, evidence of the software maker's struggle to gain ground in the mobile market.

Terry Myerson, head of Microsoft's operating systems unit, asked HTC last month to load Windows Phone as a second option on handsets with Google's rival software, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the talks are private. Myerson discussed cutting or eliminating the license fee to make the idea more attractive, the people said. The talks are preliminary and no decision has been made, two people said.

I hope HTC and every other Android OEM flips Microsoft the bird. The shoe's on the other foot now, Redmond.

I don't have to discredit him, he would need to be a trusted source first, and to me he is not.

Why are you even here then? Do you make it a habit to source your news from sources you don't trust?

His statement is clear

Only to you.

PROTIP: Thom is trolling you and people like you.

Hint, he just puts the link to the source, he is only the source when he puts his personal biased opiniĆ³n below the news, that is the part I don't trust.

And his bias is pretty clear for anyone with a decent IQ, obviously you are not the case.

Funny then how your posts never exhibit any hints of intelligence.

Yes, it was quite clear - he basically indicated that he was very irritated when Microsoft refused to allow BeOS to dual-boot on PCs, and he hopes Microsoft gets a taste of their own medicine.

I.E. Karma's a bitch.

Edit: Anything more you read out of it was simply your skewed, biased perception of Thom. IOW, I see a pot calling a kettle black here.

Aww man, your comment was like a red hot skewer piercing through my stupid dumb heart.

Or, not.

It would be funny if it was not tragic that the human beings with the uttermost sureness about the correctness of their statements were not also the ones that are more likely to be proven wrong.
