Xbox: Bad business for Mirosoft, good for Linux?

Author: JT Smith

A column at osOpinion argues that Microsoft's Xbox strategy might actually be good for Linux. "If Microsoft keeps screwing around with this post-PC nonsense, it is going to become a self-fulfilling prophecy ...

If Microsoft takes its eye off the PC ball and the post-PC world happens, then Microsoft will become so overwhelmed trying to dominate
all the various platforms, that the whole creaking heap will slide down the hill into Lake Sammamish.

So all you Linux advocates, I know this may be hard. But for the sake of your preferred platform, grit your teeth, paste on a big smile, and
get out there and support the Xbox."
