So if I said this as an example would you understand?

Would the X1 have the same level of capabilities as the X1 when it comes to TV viewing?

^ This will obviously confuse the hell out of you.

Now if I said it as....

Would the XBO have the same level of capabilities as the X1 when it comes to TV viewing?

You would obviously know what I was talking about.


OK but I'm still wondering wtf you were talking about in your original response.

I'll change X1 to XO though.

XOXOXO can no longer be used for "kisses and hugs". Now you need to use KHKHKH. Or just not use it, because you can't do those things through text anyways.

Please. You act like you've never seen multiple meanings for the same acronym. It happens all the time.


It is a bad tradition. We shouldn't willingly and knowingly follow bad traditions.

Using the fewest letters possible you can't confuse oxb, and xbo as any other thing that's remotely related.

Nope, XO uses less letters. Nothing else that uses it is related.

I usually call the original Xbox just Xbox. XB also works. Xbox One I usually call XB1 even though they use the word one instead of the numeral
