Really? Have you forgotten Steve Balmer's historical speech where
he states that "Linux is communism" and also the National Guard has
to be deployed for the fight against Linux?

And what about:
"Steve Ballmer has reissued Microsoft's patent threat against Linux,
warning open-source vendors that they must respect his company's
