This does worry me, but I have a hard time believing that Microsoft could be that stupid.
Unless Microsoft is starting to lose it a bit these days.
The problems with Windows Eight
Windows Phone having limited market share
ARM based Windows RT tablets confusing customers
Trying to tie Microsoft Office to a single computer
Possibly not allowing Xbox 720 to run second hand games
Lashing out at Google regarding privacy. The "Scroogle" thing
Their dependency on patents as a crutch to attack Android
Having to bribe Nokia to use Windows Phone
