It's all based off faulty assumptions. Toshiba went after MS.
HD DVD was Toshiba's mistake pure and simple. MS helped them and then wanted something from Toshiba and they didn't get it. At least that is my understanding.
The facts in the article are not even facts for the most part. I only pointed out the big errors about the 360 not to mention Windows CE, etc.
