  • Entirely agree. History shows us that Microsoft typically fight tooth and nail for market share that spans decades. They’ve lost nothing.

  • Hmm–it’s actually the multi-device sync that gives me pause, unless Microsoft gives users of the os the option to use devices other than its own. WP7 may have rave reviews in the dev sphere, but most of my friends don’t even know msft makes phones. And yep, their tablet looks cool, but even if it does become more than a niche product, I can’t see that penetration taking less than five years.
