A few questions regarding the current Windows Phones, would like to get some input from those who actually use it. I have a family member currently be on the iOS platform which while easy to use, is too restrictive; thinks she wants a Windows phone but my expertise extends only to desktop, server and tablet varieties of Windows so I'm not sure what to recommend. - How much like "real" Windows is it? Does the similarity start and end with the Start Screen and its live tiles, or is there more to it than that? Is there a desktop? - Can it access a Windows-based network? Shared folders and printers? Connect to domain? VPN? Or do I have to save documents to a cloud service in order to access them? - Does it have Office capability and how good is it? - Is the browser a crippled mobile version or more like desktop IE? - How capable is the implementation of Exchange ActiveSync? I'm sure there are more questions to come, but this is a start.
