@SteveRichter: how was Windows Mobile a flop? It certainly wasn't a flop commercially.

I don't know enough about it. As I understand, windows mobile is being withdrawn?  Can we say the average handheld phone sold today has more computing power than the first PC?  Yet you cannot run a Microsoft OS on many of these phones?  If a phone runs android, could I, should I be able to load windows mobile?  

Well, if you don't know enough about it, how can you tell it was a flop?

And since when you have been able to run different OSs on mobile phones? (except for acts of extreme hacking, that count for what amounts to statistical noise)
