Windows PC Tablet ,
could really use the same user interface , but instead we are left with 3 completely different user experience .
WindowsPhone GDr1 is THE BEST (Folder inclused )
Xbox One is the worst, we are left with a paralyzed UX plaster and frankly useless.
Why is not respected the theory in practice of the single UX for all ?
Curious to know what you mean with regard to the Xbox. Is this via the Controller, smart glass or voice.
I tend to use Voice to control my Xbox one most of the time, Smart-glass is the next most used and then Controller when I'm playing games.
Different form factors and differing usage scenarios, require different user experiences.

Its full of junk.
I don't actually browse the store looking for stuff anymore. I wait for somebody to recommend an app.
The fakeware/ malware/security problems is something Microsoft can do something about - but don't seem interested.
All the other junk, I guess we'll have to live with it.
"Microsoft is rumoured to be dropping the Surface brand in favour of the Lumia brand, this really doesn't make sense to me. Instead I suggest that Microsoft should call their merged Windows Phone and Windows RT OS Lumia instead."
I like this idea, branding the whole Microsoft mobile experience as Lumia works for me. Then being able to say Windows runs Lumia apps, will help fix the confusion around Modern/Store apps.
@MasterPi: Doesn't the Music app come by default on Windows Phone 7.x and 8.0 anyway?
The best book I ever read on the subject of development processes was
'Debugging the Development Process' by Steve Maguire
Very hard to get hold of now, even give its age, the principles described are still very relevant.
I'll wait for Joe Belfiore to confirm it, before I believe it. Not some random Test engineer..
