While it's obvious that Windows Phone is stuck as a distant third in the smart phone ecosystem race, it's equally clear that the biggest danger to the platform isn't failure, but rather the perception of failure. And in a market in which the distant number two player, Apple, can do no wrong, Microsoft faces an uphill battle that it may never win.

Even identifying which system calls were implemented for which architectures, he said, was very difficult, as was identifying the mapping between a call's name and its number, and mapping between call argument registers and system call arguments..

I have children. My children go to school. The schools that my children go to teach ICT. To do so, they need computers. At two of those schools, there’s currently a drive to fund a bunch of iPads. Currently, said schools use a mix of desktop and laptop computers, and each has access to a bunch of interesting software tools that we parents can also get to play around with remotely in some cases. Granted, when one of my children comes home and asks if we can get a copy of said program for home it gets a bit awkward, not least when I check the prices, but there’s something useful, I think, about continuing to develop and teach keyboard and mouse skills.
