Windows Phone is doing fine, and here's an anecdote to prove it.  Perplexed

I was going through my list of friends on Xbox Live the other day, out of 42 (many of which are just random people off forums who've added me etc), 6 have achievements from games on Windows Phone.  Heck 75% of my flat now have Windows Phone 7, the other 25% is Windows Mobile 6.5. Smiley

I think the platform is doing well, just ignore the FUD from the tech blobbers (not a typo).
