Microsoft Bookstore

Microsoft has justed started its book store.

At first glance, it is a simple, to the point, no fuss, book store. But then you find out that it listing of books from various publishers on topics related to Microsoft products and technologies. And Microsoft isn't even selling them here. It is redirecting it to Amazon in case someone ones to buy them. But the interesting thing is that: just below the book description, you find links to related Microsoft case studies, resouces and other stuff.

I think it is a wonderful idea that Microsoft is targetting the development community, and not thinking of making money.

But, then I do wonder whether Microsoft would be getting commission from Amazon ? (Afterall, it is Microsoft we are talking about! ;) )
