MS does have interest in selling ebooks. Especially on the cheap.
Doesn't mean they'll forever prop up a failing pbook retailer.
Folks shouldn't overvalue the MS or Pearson investments. The MS investment is a *purchase* of Nook Media stock and avance payment for future ebook sales, not a commitment to future bailouts. MS is quite willing to write off a bad investment and walk away rather than throw good money after bad.
