Euh.. that is the official way!
Nishi said so Smile

Ofcourse, in the past Nishi claimed MSX to mean several things, but this one is the latest and greatest Tongue

That's the beauty of MSX, really... It means anything to everyone.

For Bill Gates, it meant 'MicroSoft eXtended', to make him feel better.
To Matsushita and Sony it meant "Matsushita Sony X', with the X standing for all the other manufacturers.

What does MSX mean to you? (Actually this would be a great advertising slogan Tongue)

Euhm, I don't think we should take everything Nishi says for granted, but I do think he deserves some credit on this one. Despite the fact he isn't as famous as Bill Gates and Steve Jobs (well, in Japan he is) he is quite an industry big-shot you know. And without him there would not have been MSX in the first place. However, we had this discussion many many many times before and I don't think we are ever going to agree on this one Wink

Nah.. I wasn't refering to "what MSX stands for", we all have our own oppions about that Smile Just the: "Nishi said so" part Wink

Well, like it or not. When Nishi says something about the history of MSX I'm more likely to believe it than when you say it, simple because, well... he was there! Smile

Whether you like it or not, tfh, Nishi invented MSX and he (thru MSX Association) has all rights to it. That makes his word law, it's that simple!

If tomorrow he says MSX stands for Mass Stupidity eXperiment, that's simply how it is.

Fact is, MSX is just a cool three letter combination, it was never meant to mean anything.

Your maniacal urge to reply to any and every post about this matter with this attitude is truly sad. You are a grown man, aren't you?

IC, you might want to catch up on things, reading this article :) It's a lecture Nishi held in Tilburg 2001 (pics of that fair and lecture over here!)

Oh, and there's this poll too! :)

Your maniacal urge to reply in a way that you have to insult people is truly sad. You are a grown man, aren't you?

As for me: People that keep on changing their stories, aren't the persons I would believe straight away. The fact that you do, well... Smile You draw your own conclusions. You are very good at drawing conclusions on too little information anyway, so.. please go ahead Smile

Maybe you should also give this some though: Why oh why getting personal again? Why is this always the case for you? Having some personality problems which you reflect on the outside world? {moderator: out of bounds}

C'mon... Try to learn NOT to play at the person. It's really not that hard!
