Robots.net: Microsoft's Robots Will Assimilate You
[Link] http://robots.net/article/1606.html
"They have decided that the best way to increase enrollment is to work with universities to incorporate robotics and computer games into the computer science curriculum as class projects where students can exercise their technical skills." The robotics and computer games would be developed using various Microsoft proprietary software tools instead of the currently preferred Open Source / Free software tools. Part of their plan is to develop robot platforms with hardware that runs Microsoft's .net language natively and offering them at much lower prices than conventional robotics hardware.
