    LoL.. sheeples.. Xbox+metro= multiple platform support = phones that become the laptops (docking) = app store = revenue channel.
    They thought this through while they were high on cocaine and champagne like every good corporate meeting.
    It will take a awhile for competitors to build placement tiles since they have to learn the new interface and recompile their code.
    MS's main competitor is Apple. Ms = Xbox+hyper visor, Pc = Steam, Apple = Riaa + Mpaa.

    I remember when the FBI was busting down doors because people where using betamax to copy broadcasted tv shows, beating the children and shooting their dogs. Criminals = whatever stops the money flowing to the appointed authorities.

    I wonder if they sell folk music on Xbox music center, hahahahaha... I'm like the 1 guy that searched for it.
    I guess the old timers still prefer a smokey bar with live music.

    Try installing Winamp for a push and forget solution, not that I like lamas or anything, but they are fun to pet.
    You are probably wanting streaming music, and there has never been a convergence of streaming music stations.
    Except shoutcast and a few other .com's. Someone will have to converge all their API's into one app without pissing someone off, which is VERY VERY VERY hard to do.

    Damn...I thought I was losing my mind when that popped up. As I stated, that never happened before even when I had 8 pro on my laptop not to long ago either. Thanks
