It's just a phone problem
I have supported this OS since Windows 7. And I loved it. I liked the tile system, liked the simplicity.
However since WP7, Microsoft's effort has slowly dwindled. The most telling sign about their lack of drive was the conference in October. The Band 2 got a more passionate announcement than the new Lumias.
Besides Continuum the new phones aren't doing anything drastically different, they're still far behind.
The company that worked hard to turn around the fortunes for WP's was Nokia, and we all know how that went down. It is a shame really Nokia would have prospered if they put that much effort behind Android.
I will still be following windows phones, hoping that Microsoft will turn the phones fortunes around. I don't even think a Surface branded phone will do much. In fact, I think the Windows Phone OS will harm the Surface brand if anything.
