The smell of Fear

"UNIX is snake oil" - Ken Olsen, 1987

"Linux is a cancer" - Steve Ballmer, 2001

"There is an overwhelming number of patents being infringed [by FOSS]." - Horacio Gutierrez, 2007

Microsoft's biggest competitor anymore is itself... unless they stop blaming everybody else and start taking a serious look in the mirror, we all know where this path will lead.

FOSS has as much snake oil in it as Unix did, and look where we are 20 years later.
