Microsoft - WinMo series - It wasn't until WinMo 6.5 that they *finally* got an OK touch only interface. I don't want to have to use a pointer to use my phone. Unfortunately there is still a lot of software that needs that pointer -- so MS came out with WinMo 7, with no backwards compatibility (that has been seen yet -- and I don't think there will be any), but the interface is aweful even for alphaware.

Why do you think the WP7 interface is awful? Love to hear some specifics... I'm sure I'll be considered biased since I work for MS, but I'm a huge fan of the new UI. And that's from someone who bought an iPhone day one... and haven't found anything better (including Android) until the Windows Phone announce. Personally, I think the user-centric model MS has built, surfacing useful information from apps at a higher, hub level, is a nice step forward. Thoughts? Love to hear some specifics on why you dislike it...
