Microsoft "When Bill Hilf came from IBM to join Microsoft three years ago, the company's stance on open source vacillated wildly. It would swing from outright indifference to overt nastiness. Today, something else is unfolding: Microsoft is striking a surprising balance. It has stopped dismissing open source licensing and community development as dangerous folly or evil foe, and is looking for a way to both compete and co-exist."

There's no way to release cross-platform games for consoles, while cross-platform should be the norm in the scenario markjensen was talking about.
That law of three wouldn't apply there, same as it doesn't apply to linux distros right now.

With open formats and protocols, and software being compatible, it doesn't matter what OS you use.
