If You Stop Using Our Products, We'll Sue You

Extraordinary, the lengths to which MSFT will go... Microsoft warns Asian governments of Linux suits

Get a load of this Ballmer quote at the end:

"We think our software is far more secure than open-source software. It is more secure because we stand behind it, we fixed it, because we built it. Nobody ever knows who built open-source software."

Incredible on numerous levels.

UPDATE: I was expecting this. Ballmer's claim abut Linux patent violations is bogus. Surprise, surprise.
