'Linux' or 'Unix' is Inappropriate Language as LIVE Motto According to Microsoft

>> From riverag.com:

I love Linux and the XBOX 360, so yesterday I tried to include the word "LINUX" in the motto section on XBOX Live. I was stunned when I got a message saying "Your motto contains inappropriate language. Please try again".

 

I tried this myself to make sure it wasn't any kinda hoax ... I tried to put just the word 'linux' as motto to my gamertag and indeed ... Microsoft refused it. I also tried 'unix' ... but that didn't pass the Redmond filter either. Seriously, how low can you go MS?

:lol: MS can get pretty wierd sometimes can't they?! Hey, someone should try typing in "Apple" or "Mac" and see if the same thing comes up, if so then it woud seem that MS is directly blocking names of it's competitors which is somewhat childish IMO.

 

But "apple" is a fairly common word and I'm sure there are some people who spell their first name "Mac."
