I like how they said "compatible" and not "compliant". How clever.
So obviously even after you 'delete' your phone number from facebook they will still retain that information indefinitely and probably trying to link your facebook and whatsapp accounts/information. You have to make them think your number has changed. You do this by registering a second facebook account (using a second email of course, and any random name), register your phone number with that second account (thereby removing it from the first account) then wait a while then delete/deactivate the second account. This way facebook will assume the number has changed hands (don't let them know the two facebook accounts were owned by the same person, use a different IP or at least spoof your user agent) and *hopefully* won't make the link between your original facebook account and whatsapp account (phone number).
I thought it was for enterprise users only, unavailable to home users.
I'm not sure how it will actually work (anyone know?) but I expect the updates will be available on microsoft's website for manual download by anybody. If you have to download it through windows update I should be fine since I'm using win7 Ultimate. Worst case, I can't access them directly but someone helpful will doubtless upload them to the pirate bay.
You are confusing contributing with leading the project.
Actually he's conflating them. You are confusing 'conflate' and 'confuse'.
Like punning, programming is a play on words.
