Windows 7: Next XBox: End of Windows?

Windows 7 x64 / Same
Next XBox: End of Windows?

Insider sources are suggesting that Microsoft has some pretty big plans for its PC, phone, and console businesses in the future. Of particular note is the idea that all three - and tablets and TVs besides - might all end up running the same version of Windows.

I can't see them dropping that brand. But who knows.

The day Windows ends is the day I resort to Linux, or continue using the older Windows Operating Systems.
