I don't know why you're bashing on minimalism. I'm sick of fake-gradients and fake-leather all over apps. WP has a lot of issues, but that's not one of them.

I prefer it to Android in many regards, but I view both significantly behind iOS. I actually like the Metro UI too, which does away with a lot of the stupid UI elements we've seen.

The apps for WP7 have been promising too, in part because they avoid the sheer crappiness Android is littered with. But they still aren't as good in quality as iOS (in which most apps are now pretty damn rock solid.) But - like WebOS - they're in this no-mans-land of free and premium that consumers don't respond to.

But WP7's real issues are that its web browser is WAY off of Safari, Chrome, and Android's Webkit-based browser. IE simply isn't there, and Webkit is the only game in town that matters right now.
