they should do a bit more R&D and launch it for the PC and have Google partner them with ANDROID

This is a very good idea. It would hurt M$.

Why in the world would they want to hurt Microsoft?

its actually a fairly bad idea... virtually nobody would buy it.

I just want to know why he would think that Sony would want to hurt Microsoft

I think he meant that it would hurt Microsoft indirectly. Sony selling PCs with Cell/Linux = less PCs with x86/Windows being sold. Of course, that's wrong since those are two very different markers and Microsoft doesn't have a very large stronghold in the high performance scientific market. Wouldn't harm Microsoft at all, especially since the Cell workstations would most likely be discontinued in months.

I still want to know why would Sony would want to hurt Microsoft. Not how
