It has everything to do with what drives innovation and whether Microsoft is really pushing it forward or holding it back.
I believe Google borrowed heavily from iOS when it was under development. Android looked nothing like it does now pre-iPhone(2006)
Whereas Live Tiles is a breath of fresh air from what we've become accustomed too.
It's like fandroids look for every reason to bash WP7 because it doesn't sell as many devices.
It doesn't sell as many devices because the licensing requires a minimum hardware spec which means no $99 handsets.
Nokia is looking to expand WP7 with the next "Tango" update for more mid-range phones.
...and get over this whole HTC royalty nonsense. Stop placing blame on Microsoft and place it squarely on Google which created Android only to wash it's hands of any sort of responsibility. If they wanted more control over it without being directly tied to it then they would have bought the patents that Microsoft currently holds but THEY refused.
