now, as stated in the article, the real question is, why do we 360 users have to pay for Live?

...because we don't have a choice. It's not like there are competing online services which can do everything Live can available on the 360 like there is on the PC. MS is only doing this because Live doesn't stand a hells chance of succeeding on the PC with so many competing services that were always free and frankly superior.

Welcome to the life of a closed platform user.

because you are suckers

but seriously once people agreed to it and started paying, cost also went up from xbox to xbox 360. Why would MS stop?

On the second hand MP has always been free on PC, MS tried to turn PC into another cash cow. Since the LIVE on windows only supports about 10% of features it does on xbox 360 that didn't work. But now that they slowly will introduce more and more stuff to it. Sooner or later they will introduce montly cost again.

Yeah this is a simple get people use to it now for free, later charge them a monthly for the most used features and the majority of people will not complain.
