Would you shop at the Microsoft store?

Does anyone actually buy legitimate software anymore? I thought that’s what BitTorrent was for? If you heard this rumor: Microsoft is planning to open retail stores, then maybe it’s time to consider dumping that Microsoft stock. This must be a crazy management decision. First of all there aren’t nearly enough Microsoft products to warrant it’s own store. You need Microsoft branded PCs and laptops, several generations of Zunes, and a “cool” corporate image. Unfortunately Microsoft doesn’t have any of that. You will basically just have a store stocked with software and Bill Gates’ look-a-likes. Maybe small kiosks selling Zunes and Microsoft licenses might work, maybe even have other Microsoft branded products … oh wait there aren’t any. So what’s the store going to be selling again? Now a great big retail chain of support stores would work, hopefully they will have a service to “Un-Vista” your system. That would be a great revenue generator.
