Default Developers and Windows Phone 7

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://arstechnica.com/microsoft/news/2010/08/microsofts-windows-phone-7-gamble-developers-developers-developers-developers.ars' target='_blank'>http://arstechnica.com/microsoft/ne...-developers.ars</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"As cringe-inducingly awful as it was when Steve Ballmer got up on stage to sweat and holler about developers (developers, developers, developers...), the guy had a point. What Ballmer was, uh, explaining to the attendant masses of Microsoft salespeople was that developers -- third-party developers writing software for Microsoft's operating system, leveraging Microsoft's server software, writing using Microsoft development tools -- were critically important to the company."</em></p><p>We want to showcase two articles here today. First <a href="http://arstechnica.com/microsoft/news/2010/08/microsofts-windows-phone-7-gamble-developers-developers-developers-developers.ars" target="_blank">Ars Technica</a> has an editorial outlining just why getting developers onboard Windows Phone 7 will make or break the platform. Second, <a href="http://blogs.techrepublic.com.com/programming-and-development/?p=2979" target="_blank">Justin James</a> at TechRepublic offers a developer's viewpoint of WP7 - the good, the bad, and the (really) ugly. Both articles are worth the price of admission.</p>
