Let's see how Kinect merges this with their XBox network and Kinect. Should be pretty awesome. They are pretty much raping Sony anyway.
I have to completely disagree, i can name many things now. There is no doubt their OS's have their faults, but they still remain the most commercial and mainstream computer digital mediums out their. The technology in Windows and the way it delivers it's experience is quiet simply one of the best models on the market. Linux requires a fairly tech savy mind to maintain and utilize fully (although the new Ubuntu - wow!) and Apple just hasn't appealed to commercial developers as much for numerous reasons.Microsoft and the word better are not synonymous.
Also, the introduction of .NET programming languages and the Visual Studio IDE has in my opinion revolutionized the way we program, DirectX is unrivalled in its ability to deliver powerful gaming experiences and the XBox has (and this hurts to say for a PS fan boy like me) outrun Sony. I can only assume the coming generation of XBox will be even better.
Also their Office suits are unmatched in the way you can create stunning documents, databases and spreadsheets, even if you compare it with free alternatives like Open Office.
But Windows Phone will never compete fully with open source alternatives like the Android although it has the potential to beat iOS, Bing is a disaster and so was Vista and IE just looks pretty, the bonnet remains unchanged.
