OK, that much is certain. And I'm sorry if I've been nitpicking.
The real question is whether Microsoft want to get into the ebook business as much as they wanted to make it in video games. I think that they just want their new tablets to be competitive, so they want an e-reader app and store to go with their games and etc. It's all about their tablet version of Win8, not about dominating ebooks.
