Just to think that I have to find a 3rd party solution of getting a cup holder in my car is very unattractive in my book. (In contrast, cup holder should be illegal though). Or that I have to install a 3rd party CD/MP3 player in my brand new car, just plain sad.
I understand why MS is doing it, but, that doesn't change the fact that it is leaving a sour taste in my mouth. And I can't help but to feel like I am going into a resturant that charges stake by itself and tiny sides "seperately". It would be like saying, hey, I don't need ESPN in my cable, and the people who wants it should pay 10 dollars extra, you do realize there are TONS of user will support and disagree with that, right?
You expect us to keep open minded and supportive, but, MS is not making it easy.
