Microsoft "One company - Taiwan's Foxconn - makes a staggering 40 percent of the world's consumer electronic devices. Starting now, Microsoft will be getting paid a toll on many of those devices. The company's long patent-licensing campaign has landed its biggest client yet in licensing Foxconn, formally named Hon Hai Precision Industry Co. Foxconn has agreed to take a license for any product it produces that runs Google's Android or Chrome operating systems." More protection money for the Microsoft patent mafia.

Windows of course despite the support it gets, is terrible for gaming.

There are millions and millions and millions and millions of Windows gamers who would disagree with you. As a matter of fact, you're the only one I've heard whining about Windows gaming in forever so really I think you're just whining about Microsoft in general.
