If you're right, it looks like M$ just succeeded in paying off Spike. What an awesome company. Not once in their entire history have they ever made anything of quality or even worth a sh*t, so they have to thrive on attacking the competition. They're a worthless company, and their fans are the sh*t in the pits of humanity.
And you're totally right. It's not like Windows, or Office have had any positive impact or usefulness. And I'm sure Sony has never done anything ever to undermine one of their competitors. They don't care about things like money, or winning. They just want the world to be full of rainbows and to give cute puppies away to everyone who wants one.
