@Charles: Obviously I did not mean to imply that Joe's reply posted above was scripted, since he had not yet written it when I posed my question to you. My question was directed to your implied request for me to speak my mind respectfully. I explained why I spoke tersely and posed a rhetorical question to you. I believe MS and all thise invloved with WP7 are and have been aware of the frustration brewing among some of the most dedicated WP7 owners. If they are aware of the situation and know the answers to the questions that we have but, instead, put spokespeople like Eric Hautala to the podium to either ignore or side-step our questions--all the while pretending that they are answering the questions--that is disrespectful. There is no way argue otherwise.
I was happy to read Joe's reply and felt better hearing from him. His enthusiasm won me over early and I hope he is sincere in his response and will push this all in the right direction, as best one man can. He and others have put a lot of work into this platform and I don't think any of us want to see it fail.
