I totally agree about WP. 100%.

I want to like Win8, but it's like the Windows team looked at WP and asked, "How can we turn this into a bad idea?". It's got nothing to do with m&k vs touch etc. or one OS to rule them all. It's simple stuff like the horizontal scrolling on W8 being pixel perfect scrolling rather than pages like it is in a WP pivot/panorama. Little things like that, not to mention the crap in the app store and the limited/broken API's in WinRT.

I also tend to find a lot of things don't, "just work together" the way I way I expect (or at all), but it is certainly nice when they do.

Certainly as far as phone goes I don't get the hate or diminishing market share either. I love WP and everytime I try to use iOS I find it confusing and horrible (which must make me the dumbest person on the planet because apparently there has never been anything so "user friendly" and "intuitive" before).
