Windows mobile kicks the shit out of any other mobile OS. Why would they buy palm?

Ever here of the Blackberry? Better mobile OS than Windows Mobil, does not suffer from the memory management issues that WM does. When you close an app on a Blackberry, it actually closes, unlike on WM device as it keeps running in the background. Blackberry OS also supports push email, something that WM does not. The old Palm OS is a better OS as well. So tell me again, how is WM the best mobile OS around? Even the outdated Palm OS supports push email. The new Palm OS, WebOS will run circles around WM from what I have seen of it already.

My Touch Pro with winmo supports pushmail and programs actualy close. It's just that winmo is buggy and sluggish and have to tweak the heck out of it to get it to run like it's supposed to. But I love my TP and wouldn't trade for the world. Although, I might get the palm pre as a backup! ;)

I have the Sprint touch pro (great phone imo), and windows mobile is the best answer to any other OS that microshaft has. But Winmo is slow, buggy, with numerous unforseen crashes, and doesn't like 3rd party software all to much. They need a platform that is stable. Period.

It's obvious the developers/engineers at microshaft can't develope a thing unless it's reversed engineered. Why do you think they wanted yahoo? Yeah, the money, but the windows live and search features are only mediocre at best. Yahoo kicks the bejeesus outa them. Now they want palm because windows mobile is so outdated, the steam engine is starting to look more advanced. Can't redmonds elite group do anything on their own without having to acquire companies with better technology? Can't they come out with a product that smells of innovation on thier own? I don't think so!
