The Full Story of #Nokia and #Microsoft - How we got here, and why Microsoft will fail with Nokia handsets just like it did with Kin http://communities-dominate.blogs.com/brands/2013/09/the-full-story-of-nokia-and-microsoft-how-we-got-here-and-why-microsoft-will-fail-with-nokia-handset.html

Ok the news is out. I told you literally two years ago, that the Windows Phone strategy would be the death of Nokia’s handset business, and today we have the final nail in that coffin. I honestly, truly with my hand on my heart, hoped this day would never come, and that my prediction would be seen as wrong. But unfortunately I was correct (once again). I do tend to know this industry. And I was the first to tell you, on this blog, that Nokia’s handset business just died. I told you when it happend, and more importantly, I told you why it died. It didn’t die with the crazy Burning Platforms memo, nor with the announcement of Microsoft Windows Phone either. So this is my (first) full epitaph to Nokia. And we have to have a bit of history. (Long blog warning - this runs 12,000 words, so get yourself a cup of coffee, this will take about half an hour

http://talk.maemo.org/showpost.php?p=1296041&postcount=15 more and more I feel that it is useless to think about such solutions. We try to bypass #aegis limitations, but why do we have them? Why don’t we choose #gta-04 board instead of #Nokia #N9? Because we need glamorous proprietary #swipe, and then we need to find a way to bypass #freedom limitations? It’s like spending our efforts on bypassing limitations instead of improving free systems. #harmattan #maemo #meego #free-software
