Microsoft recently provided some details about a bug affecting the ability of some Windows Phone devices to download and install applications from the Windows Phone Store. According to Microsoft, the bug affects the new digital certificate on devices that have been updated to Windows Phone 7.5, but not those that shipped with WP7.5 preinstalled. While Microsoft resolves the issue, Microsoft will not publish new applications to the Windows Phone Store. Microsoft recommends that WP7.5 device owners refrain from deleting apps that won't update due to the bug, and to simply be patient while the fix is being developed.

I was excited when I read the title

...and then I read that it applies only to a bug on windows phone. Man, microsoft could have taken this stance back with Windows 98, and avoided the whole ME fiasco all together. Took them long enough to realise that the software bugs make/break the users experience.
