Humor: Microsoft announces 'release' of source code

Author: JT Smith

From the humor site, Segfault: "In a surprise press conference made this Friday evening Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer announced that Microsoft will be
releasing the source code for the upcoming Windows operating system dubbed Whistler.

'We have already begun work on the project, and have for the past three months collaborated with a small company of
enterprising young programmers from Russia,' said Ballmer in an impromptu press conference. Ballmer appeared visibly
shaken throughout the press conference, and several times made references to how 'skillful the Russian programmers
were', and how Microsoft '[didn't] want to do anything to threaten [their] relationship with them.' "
