I know there are a large number of readers who just love Windows Mobile, up to and including our own Mystictrust. Personally, I think you are all in love with the worlds worst phone based operating system. I would rather be waterboarded than have to endure a day with Windows Mobile. I’d rather the Cubs never win a world series than go back to a Windows Mobile device in its current state. Thankfully, my thoughts are echoed by Launce Ulanoff of PCMag. He chooses stronger words for his thoughts on Windows Mobile “Windows Mobile is just plain awful. There. I’ve said it, and I feel pretty good. No, wait. Actually, I don’t because those words aren’t strong enough. Windows Mobile is a scourge, an embarrassment. It’s a mass of over-engineered effluvia that only serves to slow you down, get in your way, and make you miserable.” Using Windows Mobile to me is like the screeching of nails on a chalkboard in my third grade history class. I hate it, there I said it, and I hate it. I’m open to debate about it, but I’m just frustrated as hell trying to use it. I went into my local T-mobile store lately to test the TouchPro2. Mystic REALLY wants me to drop my unlocked iPhone, thinks it’s a shame that I use one and I think it’s a shame that he thinks the TP2 is the end all be all of phones.
I think it’s safe to say that we all look forward to what Windows Mobile 6.5 can bring to the table. Perhaps an operating system that doesn’t make me want to watch hours of White Sox World Series Championship videos. Few things could be more painful. Anyways, I think you should all give this a good once over, WM lover or not, it’s an interesting read.
