IF the sales have actually increased, it is only because to Nokia and not Microsoft. Most people absolutely love Nokia's technology, especially Nokia's Camera and bundled apps like Maps, Music, etc.

I want to buy a laptop and it will be windows 7 not windows 8. For laptop and ultrabook windows 8 is disappointing, a mixed between applications and the windows 7. Windows 8 force people to look at a large screen full of fingerprints.

Windows Phone is still at the bottom of the mobile OS ladder besting only the dying Symbian breed.

Ballmer says: "We have sold 5 phones in November worldwide". Please read correctly, only 5 units sold of windowsphone. This is a record for Microsoft, there are now 5 users!!. Ballmer, Elop from Nokia, and ballmers girlfriend, and the 2 sisters. Total 5.
