    If you have a Lumia 920 you can always use a real knife and prevent those friction burns. Don't try on an iPhone 5 though.

    just get a glove. Regardless Gorilla glass, Lumia 920 is the only one that's glove friendly.

    Leaving WM on 5/2018 if no apps, no dedicated billboards where I drive, no Store name.

    Yeah, because 90 million units sold means that zero got into consumer hands. *rolls eyes*

    60 million, and spare me the strawmen argument.  I'm obviously not saying no one is using Win8, just that using MS's numbers for shipped obviously isn't that accurate if we're seeing a historical decline in PC sales for pete's sake.  Duh.

    Absolute sales disaster?  Perhaps not.  Meeting the goals of Win8?  Can hardly say that either.  It was to at least steam this tide, or ameliorate it with tablet sales.  Do you think Surface RT is flying off the shelves?

    In related tablet news, Samsung is cancelling its ATIV RT tablet for the US market, as there's "no demand".

    Here's a question to think about:

    Are Microsoft causing the PC market to decline by producing an OS that is less PC-orientated (as many on this thread suppose), or is Microsoft making their OS less PC-orientated because they can tell that the PC market is in decline?

    60 million licenses just doesn't get you the revenue it used to.
