    Not really a surprise. In fact, have kind of the same reaction as when someone really old dies and I go "Wow, I didn't know he/she was still alive." :vbrolleyes:

    Even on a failed platform, Microsoft still lets the end user know that support is ending. As sad as it is that Microsoft can't market a product to save their lives, EOL notices is one area that they win hands down. Apple? *uncontrolled laughing* Google only somewhat announces EOL. It is out there, but not without looking.

    Now that that's done, I wonder if they'll ever put real Windows on a phone. They put a lot of energy into trying to get people to take 'windows' sans meaningful software support (the only thing Windows is actually good at) on ARM. But now you could have real windows with the full library, be a shame to not even see a surface phone that can power a surface 2-in-1 dock (a la redfly/foleo/lapdock/elitex3/etc) tried. It could finally, actually be useful.

    It's funny, something made me think of Windows Phone the other day and I wondered if it was even around anymore. I meant to check but forgot.
