Do people buy things from Microsoft? hahaha.

Well, yes. 90% of the world PC operating system is using window. So what do you think?
This is not what Microsoft is accepting bitcoin for. They are only accepting it in their xbox store (not for actual xboxs though) although they may expand this in the future
Yeah... I noticed just recently. I checked out the payment options and bitcoin was nowhere to be seen, even though i read articles claiming otherwise. At first i thought it's just because i'm not in the US.
They are trying to match their user base with the user base of bitcoin and accepting bitcoin for those services.

They will. It's just a matter of when. The more time you take to accept bitcoin as a businessman = the more of a dumb idiot you'll be seen as in the future for not having the balls to be a pioneer.
You are probably right. They will probably see that the overall cost of processing the payment is much lower and they will not need to deal with the hassle of things like chargebacks
