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.

In fact, it was back in 2009 that the Linux Foundation first began its formal training programs.
