Official Statement my microsoft regarding another flop

"At any given time, across any of our business groups, there are new ideas being investigated, tested, and incubated. It's in Microsoft's DNA to continually develop and incubate new technologies to foster productivity and creativity. The "__X__ project is an example of this type of effort and its technologies will be evaluated for use in future Microsoft offerings, but we have no plans to build such a device at this time."

"So let’s design it, build a few and then open source the specs so anyone can create them."
"If everything works well, we’d then open source the design and software and let anyone build one that wants to."
