Google "Wired has obtained a copy of a cease and desist letter sent by Google to Microsoft today, demanding Microsoft immediately remove the YouTube app from its Windows Phone Store and disable existing copies on consumers' devices by May 22. The YouTube app for Windows Phone - developed by Microsoft not Google - strips out ads and allows downloading, both violations of YouTube's terms of service." Incredibly petty. Just come up with a solution, you bunch of kids.

Allow me to be presumptive and say thats not really the argument. The argument is that Microsoft is complaining about Google not supporting their platform due to size.

As you already know, discussion on internet forums tend to drift away from the actual ideas contained in the original posting. It's common place that people reply to comments without directly addressing something in the original post because 1) it isn't relevant, or 2) the conversation has moved away from those originally posted ideas.

Therefore,
Yet Microsoft does exactly the same thing in not supporting Linux. It doesn't matter whether or not we actually want support. Microsoft has for whatever reasons decided not to support Linux. Pot, meet Kettle.

has nothing to do with what I said.
