Earlier this morning, the Windows Phone development team officially signed off on the release to manufacturing (RTM) build of “Mango†– the latest version of the Windows Phone operating system.
Yay, Mango is finally coming out. I've been looking forward to this for months

Best os ever

It's pretty good, fast, and simple. It will be nice to finally get multi-tasking.
But to be honest I was getting along fine without it, and I understand why they didn't put it in for the initial release.
So let's hope that the speed of the OS isn't affected, I think it's one of the best things about WP7.

People actually use Windows Phone? I had no idea.

I used it on my HTC HD2 for a couple weeks and really didn't like it. I believe it was WP6.

There sure are.
The WP7 user base is small in comparison to iOS and Android but I think it will grow.

It's a great platform, it's changed ALOT since since WP6

Hallelujah! Does that mean we will finally see the new line-up of Mango devices anytime soon? I'd really love to see what Nokia have to offer!

Windows Mobile does not compare to Windows Phone 7. I'd say it's like comparing Windows 3.1 to Windows 7, quite honestly.

I don't see the whole buzz. I'm not especially favoring Microsoft at the moment. Firstly, they charge a $15 licensing fee for WP7, and then they pretty much coerced HTC into a settlement that included a $5 licensing fee for each Android handset sold. From the time of that settlement, Microsoft has only sold a bit more than 2 million licenses, amounting to $30 million in revenue, while HTC has shipped out more than 30 million Android devices, making $150+ million for Microsoft, 5 times that of its sale from its own OS, and they're only seeking more royalty from other Android device manufacturers. It's more ironic that HTC actually produces WP7 phones and has long partnered with Microsoft.

And this relates to the release of Mango how..?

It has everything to do with what drives innovation and whether Microsoft is really pushing it forward or holding it back.
