Any worse than Steve Wozniak purposely tanking the Apple computer so HP couldn't sell it for profit? (although I can't fault Woz for that, I would have done the same thing)
OS2 was a POS OS anyway. The thing was a compatibility nightmare, and extremely limited. I remember when I got an early copy of it, and slammed it. My friends that I was nuts (especially with the companies involved making it).
^ Then again I'm not that much more confident about WM7. Sure WM7 won't tank like OS2, but I don't see what will make people drop their iPhone or Android for it. IMO "best case scenario" is that it will top off at 3rd place...
I wonder why people hate WP7 that much. I have decided not to even get into conversations like this because most of the people out here are ignorant and talk with out facts and expect all of to either agree with their BS or they will keep fighting
MY HOFO FEEDBACK
all help given is free, and as is. I'd hate for someone to try and sue me for a mobile bill
Windows phone UI really is nice. To me when I'm done using one at the store, its like phone-candy that I crave to have my UI be that smooth etc. But It's so limited its a short lived craving.

Spend a week with a Samsung Focus like I did and see how excited you get. WM7 is barebones and needs tons of work (you'll see how much work is needed underneath those floor tiles).
As for the "hate" for WM7. Well first take a look at the stock before the "announcement" and where it is today (and yes the stock took another nosedive today). Second, many people were quite content waiting this past year for Symbian/Meego/QT. Third, for those that wanted a change, it was all about Android. Shareholders for the past couple of years have been screaming for it, tech reviewers/bloggers have nothing but disappointment/frusteration as well. Forth, Elop still gets hits with questions if he's a trojan for Microsoft. Finally (for those that got burned with the N97) Nokia basically waived the rallying flag around for the N8. After PR 2.0, you may not see another update again for the device. (N97 only received 2 updates as well)...
