    At the end of the day it is his fault that we have to pay ridiculous prices for software that has dominated the computing world but should this prejudice affect his x-box sales considering that the price is acceptable for all us poor people and the components were partly built by intel, nvidia, seagate and columbia (off the top of my head)?
    All microsoft did was piece them together.
    I mean come on Gatesy isn't that bad, he does donate to charity. (70% of all of his profits in fact)

    I don't like it because powerful consoles don't guarantee good games.

    I have no problems with the X-box, it does what it is supposed to do quite well, although, saying that, you still can't get linux on it.

    No, chipped xbox does it. Quite obvious really as the xbox is basically a downsized PC anyway.

    True, but it is a much bigger feat getting it onto PS2 though.

    Er, you can get Linux on Xbox. Although I have no idea why anyone would even WANT to use it. You can do all kinds of crazy stuff with a modded Xbox.
