Actually, Windows Phone has been rapidly gaining market share over the past year. This is due to the decline of iPhone and Blackberry sales and all the problems associated with Android security and OS fragmentation.

What is it like 5% Windows and 85% Apple and Android? Loooong ways to go, yep when you sell little you can impress people with yoy sales growth.

Actually, against the enormous popularity of android and apple, I imagine its incredibly hard to move your sales needle upwards. People are always quick to celebrate any increase in Linux and mac sales, why are they so dismissive of wp8 against the google and apple juggernauts?

Well I don't know about the Linux and Apple don't have either. But the point is, sure it has sold some, but it's really tiny still. To see it become an equal 3rd, that would be some impressive work. We hate MS the PC Game Supporter because this is a PC Gaming site, they have really shit on us. Luckily they give us a good O/S in 7, but after that they've gone backwards for years. They also have promised better support to follow up with no support at all. Simply their actions cause our reactions.

oh I know, I've been a PC gamer since 1987 (kings quest all the way!) I'm just saying its a bit of a double standard. Jumping into console gaming screwed all PC gamers. Vista was terrible, win8 has an awkward GUI, but actually performs quite well. I've just never understood the whole "some of their os's have been slow and I don't like the new GUI and controllers suck, so I'm gonna hate everything they do until the end of time arrrrrrrgh!"
