    Microsoft releases the generic update and the manufacturers do the work. There are limited launch partners, so it seems Microsoft can control this.
    That's basically how Android works now. Google releases an update. OEMs pick and choose which devices are worth their time to update. I'm not a huge fan of that system.

    If Microsoft can't support 5-6 devices from each of the four manufacturers, it should give up now. I understand WP8 devices may not get WP9, but it won't be the same as the WP7 to WP8 jump.
    And what would be those fundamental reasons as to why WP8 won't get WP9 if it's not a jump again? Hardware?, Kernel? or the Benjamins?

    Same here, makes me feel sick and it's like being picked or not picked to go to heaven :)
