    6.5 --> 7.0, 7.5 --> 8.0 and you're saying they won't do it again?
    no, its because they kept changing kernels, i don't think they abandon their customers for a while as WP 8 shares the same kernel as Windows 8.

    Yup, they had major reasons.

    6.5 was for different hardware, mostly capacitive screens for styli and the hardware buttons varied a lot.

    7.5 was a different story. They had to rework almost every bit of the code. If I had time, I would have proved this through a lengthy post. In short, the WP7.8 Start Screen isn't a port of the WP8 one at all. It is totally different code. I have bugs on 7.8 Screen which do not exist on 8, even though the former was derived from the latter.

    This thread is funny. If Microsoft really wanted to port WP8 on to wp7 devices, they could do it easily. I mean they have a bunch of software engineers getting paid a lot of money, they could do it.

    They won't do it because it's not worth the time/money/resources to do it, plain and simple.
