The phone still would have continued working same as any Lumia, HP, Alcatel, etc... Do you believe that Microsoft will just flip a switch and deactivate store access for every existing device? That they will send out an update to brick every phone in use?
The Moment would have been no worse off than any other W10M device.
I'll say it again. Any "guilt" you felt came from within yourself. The other side was simply promoting this project in a positive light. All the ghoulish doom and gloom is/was/and will continue to be problematic for users on this platform. I've never seen the like of it elsewhere. "Heya, my phone is dead, your phone is dead, they're all dead. Let's heap abuse on any effort to make something out of what we have and SHOUT IT DOWN."
If YOU don't have any fight within yourself, that's on you. Not me or anyone else. If you want to scream about the futility and make it a majority opinion, then it becomes self fulfilling.
I feel like I was personally robbed of an opportunity and I'm just a user. Imagine how the folks at Wharton Brooks and Cerulean feel. Betrayed is the most likely answer.
Why would any company support us when we show them anger and resentment for trying?
Enjoy your schadenfreude. The "guilt" comes from your own efforts to make sure just how right you would be in the end. Don't try and transfer that guilt to me or others.
I call bull snot.

I was just about to write pretty much exactly the same thing.
Well said mon frere.
