on Steve Ballmer's speech to an audience of Microsoft Most Valued Professionals
in London in which he explains Redmond's strategy against Linux. Apparently,
they are aware that Open Source will not go away and that the main problem
is the community of developers behind it and not simply that it is free.
But Microsoft is sure that it will defeat Linux on "value", especially
in clustering and the like. Ballmer also said;"We do not anticipate offering
software on Linux. Nobody pays for software on Linux."
