I think it's even simpler than that. The graphics chipset manufacturer in
the Xbox cut an IP deal with SGI. It does not apparently cover
sublicensees, like MS. So MS negotiated a deal with SGI to make sure the
Xbox IP was free and clear, and ended up BUYing instead of licensing.
Just my interpretation and synthesis of the rumors....
