Am I wrong in hearing "Nokia supported Microsoft Windows and now is going out of business", more or less ?

Pretty much sums it up. And this is the OS interface that MS wants on windows too.

I don't see anything wrong with that, sounds like great business planning all around!

Shame that a company known for building great handsets hasn't been able to right ship. Doubling down on MS when MS hadn't reached the market yet was a mistake. They probably should have tried building a great phone with stock Android for some extra revenue. It would not have solved their woes but might have gotten them further down the road.

I think their worst mistake was thinking they could succeed with Symbian. That put them way behind the competition for years. If they'd continued to build highend handsets like the N900 but on the Andriod platform I think they could have carved out a nice market early on.
