HowÃ¢â¬â¢s this for some offbeat news to start the you-can-no-longer-wear-white season? A few blogs I read this morning are reporting that people on the Xbox Live online service are being forbidden from using gamertags (read: screen names for Xbox 360) that feature the words Linux or Unix. So what happens when you like Linux and decide to change your Xbox Live gamertag motto to Ã¢â¬ÅLinux rulesÃ¢â¬Â? Well, Microsoft black flags you, thatÃ¢â¬â¢s what.
