I do not own an X-Box or a X-Box 360. I really hated Microsoft when I was a child since the community seem to. However, after learning that the Amiga OS, Commodore 64 OS, and the Commodore 128 OS were written by Microsoft, what can I say. I loved Commodore at that time and didn't really put two and two together.
Today, what do I not like. Well, the updates. However, my linux box has freaking updates, too. Including security updates.
Kind of reminds me of my Dad. He only drove Mopar products. However, in the mid/late 80s, early 90s the product was not how it was in the 60s/early 70s. So, him saying I only drive Mopar products kinda seem silly when you talk about the mechanics of the car. They would only get him 80 to about 120 thousand and a Japanese made care could of got him 200 to 300 thousand. For a short time he had to drive a Datson and he complained about how it would rust in a heart beat. However, I drive a Nissan (same company) today and it seems not to have that same issue.
Windows, MAC, Linux, whatever. I just use what gets the job done.

That reminds me of I-Pods, today. Currently, what is keeping them really being sold is the connector. You can change songs, randomize, pull data, and pause/play songs. Just imagine if it actually became a standard.
A good example would be the Intel and AMD cat fight over sockets/slots. That wan't Microsoft's fault. That was the chip manufactures doing.
