I like that they are taking control of their own success by opening their own stores. To be honest, traditional partners just do not have the strength or guts to put forth such a force. And the important part is that it is not behind some other company and their indentity. It is soley behind the identity of Microsoft.

Hope they don't use square rooms with a door or they will get sued...

Cool the Florida Mall in Orlando is right next to me and they are building it right next to the Apple Store. That's going to be fun to watch. I'm hoping a cool grand opening with giveaways. I'll be there.
