iPhone or Android: it's time to choose your religion

As a Windows Phone user I am honestly curious why The Verge does not see any potential in the Microsoft ecosystem. They are smart people and have been in the tech industry for a while.

I guess the answer is not that easy since the app ecosystems can't be the only reason. Or is the Verge staff too much in their own bubble that they don't see the potential of the Microsoft ecosystems, especially for businesses?
