I dug up my old Lumia 950 Windows Phone the other day.

Now I'm sad.

I'd convinced myself that Android isn't that bad, really, but half a second of seeing smooth 60fps UI animation, a single reactive swipe of the home screen, and I am (once again) wondering why the world decided that windows phone, and webOS, and Blackberry 10 (aka QNX) had to die, and Android may live.

Sailfish is a faint glimmer of hope, but frankly, I don't think they have the kind of money to throw at UX that MS, or even BlackBerry on its last leg, pumped into their mobile OSs.


Update: I tried Sailfish 4.
They don't :(
