What a shit show in the making. It keeps getting better. And then of course there's this article. Intel, if you have to say you're not blinking, then you're blinking.
Our strategy has always been to provide choice when it comes to operating systems, a strategy that includes Windows, Android, and MeeGo. This is not changing.
Uh huh. Your strategy has been to develop a shitty choice that goes along less shitty choices. If you're not building the "best" and just building a "choice", that has fail written all over it.
And I love all these blogs claiming they should have gone for Android. HAVE ANY OF YOU ACTUALLY USED WP7? Seriously. Just try it. It's at least as good as Android. And it doesn't have the, "lets be like linux distros and invent a new home screen UI for every damn phone" syndrome. OMG BUT IT DOESN'T HAVE COPY AND PASTE! WTF people, Apple proved that you could ship a good phone w/o it. I'd much rather use WP7 w/o c&p than Android with it.
These bloggers smell of the "oh the last time I used anything Microsoft was windows 98 and I'm not touching anything from them again!". Is there a TM for that?
Nokia, with it's strategy of symbian, than maemo, then symbian, then meego, then qt, then symbian, then linux, then symbian, then open source symbian, then gtk, then qt, has clearly shown the open source is the way! Maybe that CEO dude meant to say open source is the burning platform. As in, it burns you every time you try to build on it.
