It really is that simple.
A co-worker of mine has a Windows Phone (It's 7.5 but still has the fugly tile interface). I don't see the appeal at all, after messing with it for a while. I guess that is just personal preference. I'll stick to my iPhone, and go Andriod if Apple ends up pissing me off.
That said... with MS trying to compete in that market (and being late to the game, as usual) I agree that they need to keep that crap off the dekstop and stick with what they're good at for that platform. With the alleged "PC is dying" banter... it's almost like MS is trying to boost the speed at which they become irrelevant.
