M$ is trying to copy Apple again.  They have been opening M$ stores with laptops, phones with WinCE, Zunes, and so on.  The currently open stores are in Mission Viejo, Calif., Scottsdale, Ariz., Lone Tree, Colo., and the Fashion Valley Mall in San Diego, with plans to open more stores in Mall of America in Bloomington, Minn., and at Bellevue Square near Seattle.  (Hmmm...not opening one in Oregon?  I wonder why....)

M$ has announced they are going to open one of their Micro$oft stores in Oak Brook, Illinois.  You know...in my backyard.

Okay...I leave Rob Liefeld alone.  I don't bug Peter David.  I treat people who don't agree with me with respect and understanding.

But I'm going there in my Tux The Linux Penguin shirt and I'm doin' it for the lulz!

I've been to the one in Mission Viejo - my best friend wanted a new laptop and she was curious, and so we went. Interestingly, they had Special Promotions going on that essentially meant you could choose between a free Zune or free XBox Arcade, plus $50 off any printer over whatever amount. They only had 2 printers there, and only one of them was over the correct price - the better one. It came out to be like $15? She needed a new printer anyway.

They're laid out exactly like Apple stores too, which I thought was both creepy and hilarious.

I'm tempted to use their computers connected to the Internet to test the Windows firewall. ;-)

I'm not sure if you should have let me know about this... I might find a way to get into trouble with this information.
