This is exactly how I feel about it. I got a Windows 7 Mango phone for international travel because of a built-in translator app for Chinese (it was a trade so it was worth the risk). I was and am impressed by the operating system. There are a few minor quibbles, but overall it's fast, smooth, and intuitive.

That same operating system on a desktop with a Microsoft controlled store? Big case of misplaced priorities there. It almost seems lazy.

I would have reserved that layout for AIO Touch PCs or anything Slate-like.
