I think the negative attitude towards Windows Phone probably has something to do with Microsoft's design choices over the past ten years or so.

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".
