It looks decent but it feels like they are mucking about too much with Windows and stuff in general at the moment to really get it right. The important apps are there, skype, browser, email and office so thats not really a problem for me truely. I could get over it anyways

The main reason I think that I dont have faith in it at the moment is that its a brand new platform and it recieves 1 update a year. Blackberry will likely be at 10.1 when it launches in the states, WebOS and android both recieved countless updates in quick succession when they were young. Microsoft doesnt seem to be willing to push the developments fast enough and thats holding them back. iOS can get away with it now because until they get a proper overhaul (Which I doubt is coming any time soon) really cant change much anyways, glass ceiling. If Microsoft cant push the updates the platform wont develop quickly enough
I'm honestly with you on that, the OS is great but it's as if Microsoft doesn't consider it their priority and only shell out updates to it once every 6 months or something (last update was 3 months ago for me) it pains me to see them create something good and just to let it go like that. Heck I think Nokia did more than Microsoft did for the OS.... I mean they're about a dozen Nokia apps available for the phone all of them really great, and it shows they're dedicated to the operating system compare to Microsoft. I've also heard complains from developers about how the SDK is lacking and they don't have access to certain resources (the timer app for example doesn't even work correctly cause Windows Phone 8 updates the time by the minute).
