First, the differences between Windows Phone 7 & 8 beneath the surface are massive. WP8 is basically a completely different OS. It has Windows 8 at its core. This change has been anticipated for a long time. This fundamental difference means that WP8 is incapable of running on any WP7 phone. This is not an attack on the consumer! It is partly an attempt at reducing the effort required in maintaining all its OSes, and it's also a way to make it more convenient for a developer to develop an app for both the Windows 8 and WP8 platforms, which in turn can result in more apps on both app stores. Also, look at what Miarfeus said. Nobody guaranteed you future OS upgrades on your phone. You bought the phone because it seemed like a good phone and you thought it was worth the money. Its functionality has not decreased over time, right? You have been provided with updated which improve the functionality of the phone, so you have what you paid for plus more. There will always be better gadgets that come out. I have a 256 MB flash drive that I paid $15 for several years ago, and I now you can get 32GB drives for about the same price. Tech moves on, and complaining about it doesn't make anything better.

He bought the phone based on what it was capable of at the time, and he doesn't need an ever-expanding array of features to be satisfied with a good product. Plus I'm sick and tired of hearing abuse heaped on people who enjoy Microsoft products. Differences in preferences should not be ample reason to throw insults, something I realized myself several years ago.

Seriously, if you're upset that your phone doesn't have little and large tiles on the screen, but just medium sized tiles, you need to get a life.

You'd be wrong.
I wouldn't think that. I would think MS would act in a commercially reasonable manner, devoting its resources to expanding before taking care of early adopters, considering its scant market share - pretty much as Google and Apple do.
It's a corporation. It's not your friend. It doesn't have an obligation to people who bought the product. It's silly to ask a corporation to do things against its own interests.

Yeah. Microsoft needs to make their own phone.
