Ballmer and Taylor are really sick, and have none knowledge about the open
source or linux philosophy, seeing linux as a rival who is trying to beat
them... poor guys

But there's really no "new tune," is there? To wit:

"In January Taylor poached one of IBM's former Linux technical leaders,
William Hilf, to test 20 versions of open-source software in Redmond.
Hilf two years ago was in front of audiences touting the cost
effectiveness, reliability and performance of open-source software.
Nowadays he's working the Microsoft spiel: "There's no set architecture
in Linux. All roads lead to madness," and "the devil is in the details.
This stuff is not easy to run."

" ...

" ... Microsoft is actively sowing uncertainty and doubt among potential
Linux customers over who, if anyone, owns the intellectual property
behind open-source software."

Classic MS FUD.

And this one is just a joke:

" ... Can Linux really handle crucial areas such as security and e-mail?"
