Random Pagan Verse:
Once he has won wealth enough,
A man should not crave for more:
What he saves for friends, foes may take;
Hopes are often liars.

We’ve known for a while that Windows phones are pretty much dead, but Microsoft has only recently acknowledged the demise of the platform, saying that it has no plans to ship new features or hardware for its mobile operating system.

Users and developers are one by one switching to Android or iOS, but some can’t get over the death of Windows phone without criticizing Microsoft for ruining the platform.

The creators of Game Troopers, which was one of the most popular games on iOS and Android a few years ago, explain that despite their commitment to Windows phones, Microsoft’s mobile strategy was entirely wrong and basically destroyed every chance of its mobile push to succeed.

“Microsoft has done a lot of bad things with Windows Phone, from an engineering point of view – with so many breaking changes on the platform – and from a commercial point of view - the way they treated very loyal developers like Game Troopers and how the company tried to attract others. These were all wrong,” Game Troopers CEO Jesus Bosch was quoted as saying in an interview with Spanish outlet OneWindows.
