    Your comment about how MS "screwed over" app developers on Windows Phone is not entirely accurate. Apps that were developed on WP7 continued to work "as-is" on WP8 and apps developed on WP8 continue to work "as-is" on WM10. In some ways it was users that got screwed on the WP7 to WP8 transition since you couldn't upgrade your existing WP7 phone to WP8 and for many phones the same thing happened from WP81 to WM10. They did kill the Silverlight and XNA platform which sucks but in the long run UWP is a better model.
