Dumbest comparison ever. I mean really your gunna compare a company to a mass murderer because u do not like some of thier business decisions?

I think you may have missed the common sense train when it rolled by giving out free samples.

Between this, the growing always online backlash, and now Kinect coming under fire, MS looks to be in for some interesting times.

I hope 'interesting' is slang for 'nuked from orbit'. :D

No. No its not.

Given the stranglehold MS has on the industry in general they can only go down bloody and take others with them.

Be nice if they could get that monopolistic stick out their @$$, but by all counts its been there since the beginning.

Its a good thing that game developers are now starting to be more cautious about where/how they release titles, and that the likes of Steam have now successfully deployed to Linux, it will be an interesting time to see which titles they will push onto that platform in the future. Not that Ubuntu is not playing in an app-store-like environment as well, but at least you're not tied to Ubuntu, you can go in other directions with a bit of creative reconfiguration of the Steam client

And there's been some huge rage in the Ubuntu community about them trying the 'bad' way of certifying apps, from Linus Torvalds himself. We've got Steam Linux running under Mint and had no problem getting it there - it just worked :)

Yeah because every big name developer started to port their games over to Mac when Steam for Mac was released a couple of years ago /s
