@baron99:

You apparently did not even read what's up here.

First, not a single of those 34 patches is security related and second, now it's bad that a software developer quickly provides updates to bugs in their software?
At least Microsoft does frequently release updates. I have seen software that never gets fixed if it's broken.

And please don't pretend that Linux doesn't have bugs constantly being fixed. If it didn't I'd consider that dangerous. There is no bug-free software, after all, that's a complete and utter impossibility.

Again and again we see reports of lots of bugs in windows that's why

NO ONE WANTS A WINDOWS PHONE!

Ever notice WHENEVER you draw attention to Microsoft code defects, their bad behavior, their old crappy resource hog OS etc. the response from the astroturfers is to use it as an opportunity to attack Linux. This is ladies and gentleman...drum roll... "Classic trolling" by the microsoft astroturfers trying to deflect the discussion from Windows being such a buggy pig.

But the result is the same and it must really disturbing to the astroturfers that the truth is:

NO ONE WANTS A WINDOWS PHONE!

...oh please tell us again how we should be waiting for Moore's law :-)

Now that Blackberry hava gone Android, should they be considered their own "thing"?

Anyone that feels hope for Tizen should read the following:

Don't be naïve, Samsung simply has no clue how to develop software - even my "super duper" Samsung UHD curved TV's experience went to horrible once they replaced Android with Tizen in the firmware. Tizen is simply a marketing stuff where Samsung is going to burn a lot of money and never achieve anything with it, whereas more people will waste their time waiting for them to break out. There is a limited supply of talented and driven developers (even MS lacks them) and even more limited supply of talented managers that aren't pathologically egotistic (Google seems to be now run by lunatics as well while some devs are still sticking there), so the future looks pretty bleak for established companies (all beyond bozo event horizon). Guess why everyone is acquihiring like crazy?
