If Microsoft come out sometimes after E3 with formal apology, some or lots of backtracking on 'features', and lots of Microsoft executives are sacked...

and to top that with the resignation of Steve Ballmer and Bill Gates back as the CEO, effective immediately...

would you be less angry?

Empires of old throwing their civil servants and barons to the angry mob to be torn apart and save the throne from time to time. Football teams sack their coaches for the very same reason. What would make Microsoft empire be any different?


No, because they will still try to scheme a way to make money off used games.

At this point really TC, it is too late. Contracts have been signed, parts have been ordered, sales projections have been made, factories have been tooled, & Microsoft is too arrogant to do so.

Bill Gates should really come back. If I recall correctly, Ballmer rushed out the 360 and that's why we got the RRoD.


Best thing about Bill Gates...he understood his customers, what they wanted & how to give them quality.

Nope. I'm not angry at all actually.


This, if I don't like a product I just don't buy it I don't get angry about it.

Not if you sack the 'sacrificial lambs', pin the blame on outgoing executives, then talk contracts over. GM did it, worked like a charm.

You want to pay the penalty now and keep customers from fleeing further, OR you want the new guy in charge throw you out later with no severance pay?

Regardless of who is fired, Microsoft is still bound by the contracts they have signed with companies for parts & for services.

Some said because Bill came out of the campus on foot for lunch and dinner, see the world, see customers, and talked over thing with his men in cafeteria.

Ballmer always got chauffeured between his house and the campus, his feet hardly touch the ground on the way, let alone talking to people outside the wall or outside his circle.

6 months is not as long as it sounds in the world of manufacturing...you can't just "start over" and hope the companies that you have signed contracts with understand and release you from obligation.

I read that he had a shouting match with Bill when he stepped down and then some things about using him...
