Just wondering why all the hate
I'm interested in trying it out since I don't really have any negative preconceptions. What are your negative thoughts about this phone OS now?

I don't slam any OS any more, but I will get on someone that does. Check it out, and go for it. However, AT&T seems to be the only carrier that's serious about it. They have several phones now, and have...
When I'm selling a phone to a customer who is utterly clueless to technology, but wants to text, I recommend windows phone.

Windows used to be a crisp and clean offering, and eventually became an operating system wherein the application windows took more CPU to render than the applications themselves.
Windows was a rip-off of MacOS, but it was nice and simple, so it didn't feel like it was a rip-off.
Now Windows is still a rip-off, but (presumably) thanks to updated patent law, looks pointlessly "different to be different".
