Friday, October 28, 2005 Microsoft to take Windows from South Korea

According to, Microsoft is planning to take Windows from South Korea because of antitrust issues raised by the country pertaining to the media player and instant messaging.

I don't know how much of this is brinksmanship, but I am wondering what this bodes for the game industry? South Korea is a major force in online gaming, and all of that runs on Windows. Will Microsoft blink? Or will the South Korean government?

Or will this mean that we might finally see some games running on Linux?


  1. games on Linux! haha. Sokor should just go on and call Microsoft's bluff.

    ola, ser. yup, had the flu for a while, plus a host of other problems i'd be too embarrased to discuss online, hehe. thanks. =)


  2. Glad to hear you're back, TP. I was down with the flu for a while, too. Take care, and thanks for visiting.
