    Oh, god, Ballmer...where to begin? Only Microsoft could have a resident court jester. And what a fool he is.

    Whoopty do.

    Another Microsoft product that no one will care about or buy.
    I can't think of anyone who will actually use the virtual server stuff of Longhorn.

    Didn't "The Ballmer" threaten legal action if Asian entities switched to Linux?

    Guy looks like Terry Bradshaw+100 lbs.

    Side note: Just saw for the first time some mpegs of him giving speeches. Now I've seen the pictures before but never the videos.

    I'm not doing too well right now...

    You know, it wouldn't be a bad idea for MS to follow Apple. They could trash Windows as is and rebuild their OS on top of the Linux kernel. They'd may still screw it up, but at least they'd be trying to get it right.
