I can understand why this idea came up in the first place. Its because Microsoft has turned out to be a laggard in both phones and tablet computing, despite being early in both games. It just never got any traction whatsoever. One of the reasons for this is that Microsoft could never bring itself into any form of thinking that was not “Windows everywhere.” This meant that its early attempts at making smartphones had to look and act like Windows. All the pad events were just Windows on a pad. Whatever Microsoft created had to reflect what was on the desktop machine, no matter how impractical.
