Open Source advocate Bruce Perens has a column on ZDNet: "It's entertaining to watch the effect that open source seems to have on Microsoft executives. In
February, Jim Allchin called us un-American. Recently, Steve Ballmer said Linux is a cancer!
These are not the words of calm people. What is it about open source that makes Microsoft
executives so uneasy? Could it be that after all of these years, competition has become so
foreign an idea to them that they react with horror?"
