MS is getting a lot of free advertising out of this. Now all these millions who had no idea about this product will be checking them out when released.

FWIW: I agree Phone Man, It could have been a pre-planned crash, After all any publicity is good publicity.

Murphy works overtime. Just last week a high profile Apple demo crashed during a presentation and the live demo had to be cancelled.

I watched the video, and thought it
was rather amusing, but if you
really want to laugh just browse the
comments about the video on You
Tube. People really go overboard
sometimes, it was a freakin bug.
Anyone that likes/uses tech knows
this stuff happens no matter what
brand it is, people need to chill....

I wager that MS would have been happier if there had been no crash, but all comments, mine included, are pure conjecture.
