MS says no to 3rd party UI in WM7?

Windows Mobile is very well known for its wide variety of User Interface like Sense and Panels, well MS wants to put and end to that. The news comes from German site Teltarif.de (via MSMobiles) and they say that Windows Mobile 7 will bring a very unwanted end to User Interfaces that manufactures like HTC and SE add to personalize the device.

There is an alternative to this story, MSmobiles is also speculating that MS might be developing  two versions of WM7. The first version will consist of all MS settings, the so-called "Microsoft experience", and their own UI(which must be killer if they are doing this) and the second version will not have their UI, but whatever UI companies add on themselves.

I have mixed thoughts about "forbidding of 3rd party user interfaces in Windows Mobile 7", it could be a good sign that Microsoft is very confident about what they have come up with and they want everyone to use it and bring back some respect to their UI name. I also think it is a bad idea because not everyone likes the same things, and if we are all stuck with one thing, then that would not be very interesting, because multiple UI’s simultaneously is what really sets us apart from Android, iPhone and just about every single OS out their. This is big, but lets just say “XDA get your knifes and pans ready, you might have some cooking to do.”

Comment your thoughts, with intense 😉
