The best defense is a good offense the phrase goes. This is definately something that Steve Ballmer knows. So while he is talking over and over about Linux infringing on Microsofts IP you can almost here him back at headquarters ordering his minions to steal every last bit of IP out of linux to make Vista worth a shit. At least to make the next release of Vista worth a shit.
Just a note Steve, your backing of SCO how did that go? Not very well, did it? IBM has some deep pockets. Probable deeper than yours. You think they are going to roll over now? What do you think is going to happen when you start to gear up to go after Red Hat and other Linux people with bullshit IP threats? The whole IT industry will be lining up to take a swing at you like the little girl in the movie “Airplane”. You think Google will miss the opportunity to take some easy shots at you? Apple? Sun? Oracle?
Everybody hates you guys already. So long and thanks for all the FUD. Good luck with all that.
