Is anyone from LA prepared to take on some of the Baller-isms?


Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer took on Linux in a big way this week during
the company's annual meeting with the financial analyst community, saying
that "too much abuse has gone on for too long."


"Does IBM fix Linux problems the way IBM stands behind and fixes the MVS 
operating system? Of course not," he continued. "Does IBM indemnify the 
intellectual property in Linux the way it indemnifies the intellectual 
property in every IBM software product? ... The answer is certainly no."
