For all the talk even before WP launch and ever since of promise after promise that the platform will see quicker and more frequent updates.
FACT IS, IT'S NEVER HAPPENED.
And here we wait almost 3 years after launch and it's still the same.
I'll make this prediction now:
IF Microsoft doesn't start increasing funding to ramp up development of WP (just like Android had to do to get adoption rates up) eventually more and more OEM's and customers will just flat out leave the platform.
And I wouldn't blame them one bit.

Not sure what you are talking about WP8 has seen quite a few updates this year
WP7 will most likely not see anymore updates unless they are security fixes(and well WP is really secure)

Yeah I thought Microsoft said when they announced wp8 that updates will no longer be restricted by carriers and such. Yet I feel like we are still subject to the same restrictions. We see phones on certain operators get updates first. When will all wp8 devices get the update at the same time.

Exactly. it's no secret that the WP division isn't given the resources to ramp up their development cycle. To hear some of the fanboy's on here they'd be happy with a small update every year or 2. It's mobile people they need to improve the platform chop chop. MS needs to get with it or get out of mobile (that's prolly what's gonna end up happening anyway).

More frequent updates just for the sake of saying "hey, version x.x is now released" does nothing to make the OS look more attractive.
How about instead of ripping MS and anyone who disagrees with you, you provide some substance. What specifically is missing from you point of view? Is there a particular set of features that you see missing? Is there a particular bug that hasn't been fixed? Quit posting in glittering generalities and try having an actual discussion.
