Microsoft As Microsoft had already confirmed, it's going to open a line of retail stores later this year. Last week, Gizmodo published a set of detailed slides supposedly detailing the shopping experience Microsoft is going to implement. Today, Microsoft has confirmed those leaked plans are real (but not finalised!), while also announcing the first two store locations.

Gee, exactly what kind of company does Microsoft want to be? Now they want to get into retail? Good way to compete against your so called "partners" like Best Buy and all of the other brick and mortar retailers who sell your products.

Maybe they're planning on surprising us and selling PC's with Ubuntu. :-P

Microsoft will unveil their latest product, in association with Anaheim Electronics: MS Gundam. Gundams run on DOS, in case you didn't know.
