Good. Get MS out of this industry. Let Amazon take over Xbox. Great customer service and willing to put out a loss leader.


you know this is never going to happen right? No wonder you and your ilk are so unhappy all the time


and he seems to think spin off equals sold off. What an ignorant poster.

Wow - so many people look at one statement out of context and completely misinterpreted it.

If you didn't read the article, here's the tl;dr version:

Gates said he would support a spinoff if the new MS CEO proposed it. He ALSO said that he didn't expect Bing or Xbox to be spun off because they were a part of MS's long-term strategy.

Gates is not going to undermine the new CEO right after she takes charge. At this point, he'll back her in just about anything. If anything, his comment was a subtle reminder that spinning off either of those two divisions would be a poor decision.

did she realize that you were not that bright and think spin off means sell off?
