Black forest. Issues with concentration.

I should have started editing my short film but instead I put in the Black forest in Lendonia. Its like when I was studying I will start writing but first I have to clean the house and do the dishes.

But the forest looks good.

And oh yes. I have put in a nice work place to in the shade. You need a nice place to work even in a virtual world. haha..

What about that a new Xbox One.

Is it going to be a success? Naaa I do not think so. Why?

It is like many Microsoft products a little bit to late. It have many nice functions but when I see how I use the Xbox 360 I have, I do not believe in it.

I put my XBox 360 away and did not miss it for months. I never use it. But I do use the controller. The family have worn out two of those. But I have the controller connected to a PC that’s connected to the big screen. It runs a Windows 7 media center and all of the family's favorite games.

For me that means World of warcraft and several other MMO s and of course the Second life viewer. None that works on a Xbox. On the PC I have Steam and a selection of other games. Family photographs and any program I want to use. Music streams from Spotify and others. The point is that I decide what I want to install and run. Not Microsoft.

I also have a Kinect. That was fun for about 5 minutes. And controlling the the screen or multimedia is just stupid. A remote is so much more effective.I use my Kinect to make Second life and game animations.

No I do not think I will by a new Xbox. I want my freedom to use what ever software I want. Or to write any software I want and publish it. I have also started to look at the world of Linux media centers. When it comes to retire my Windows 7 I am ready to change and it wont be 8 or a Xbox.

I WANT to decide what I use.
