I mostly agree.

The Windows interface, with its emphasis on the Desktop model, is IMO unsuited for (relatively) small devices such as mobile phones or tablets. Microsoft's marketing department really fell down on the job trying to promote Windows CE and its sequels. They also failed with every one their "Windows everywhere" initiatives (Win8 with Metro/Modern/...) for that reason.

Microsoft developed a winning (albeit inferior) technology in the '90s, and should stick with their strong points - Software for PCs of various stripes, servers, and now the Cloud (whatever that is Smile | :) ).
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.
