Many people I know are complaining that it is impossible to buy a
mobile phone today which is just a mobile phone.  There are no mobile
phones which only provide the functionality of a mobile phone today.
People have to pay for features they don't need.  There is a big
market for mobile phones which are just mobile phones.

It seems that the discussion becomes quite bizarre now so that it is
better to stop it.  If you really think that you need a watch which
requires to install a Microsoft service pack twice a year, be happy
with it but don't try to convince other people that this is a good
thing.  Nobody is interested in such a shit.

I'm glad to have a watch which is not infected by Microsoft and it
still works.  I can even switch to another time zone without rebooting
the system.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
