> I've actually lost count of the number of mobile phone platforms they've ungracefully killed with no upgrade path.

They not only killed their own platforms with no upgrade path to the next (or little), but they also killed off Danger's Kin and several others by their contracts with Nokia: Symbian, Maermo/Meego, Asha, Meltemi, and Nokia-X (Android).

The duopoly of Apple and Google is left because of Microsoft, nor in spite of them.
