Microsoft vs. OnLive Desktop


Greetings Geeks,

This is an interesting situation. OnLive Desktop is a service that offers a streaming Windows 7 desktop to you whenever you want it. It also offers you 2GB of online storage to go with that. It's a VERY impressive system that works extremely well. So naturally, something must be wrong with it.

Well Joe Matz, the VP of Worldwide Licensing over at Microsoft is now saying that OnLive Desktop may be in violation of Windows 7 licensing.

Matz stated that the company is "actively engaged with OnLive" in the hopes of "bringing them into a properly licensed scenario."


OnLive says "We have never commented on any licensing agreements."

So this raises the question: How long before this gets resolved? And what happens if it doesn't?

We'll keep you posted on this story as it develops.
