Re: Shame to see it end like this.
Agreed. The UX on WP 8.1 in particular was quite good, and I'd say slightly superior to that on Apple products and considerably so when compared against Android. Even if MS could find someone to buy the OS, even if highly unlikely, it would be preferable to the current laughable situation.

Unless seniority, hours worked and level of work are controlled for, this is just propaganda. People with the same level of seniority doing the same jobs are paid the same by law, regardless as to their sex. In that sense there is no pay gap. However, there is an earnings gap due to different career choices and number of hours worked.

"Of course some of us are happy to pay it."
Then make it a subscription-only service and let those who are happy to pay for it do so, while leaving those who make use of the service alone. The BBC and other license-fee recipients are not a vital national service and as such don't deserve to be able to use this legalised extortion.
