,----[ Quote ]
| Forbes:You mention intellectual property. What's going on in terms
| of Microsoft IP showing up in Linux? And what are you going to do
| about it?
| Ballmer: Well, I think there are experts who claim Linux violates
| our intellectual property. I'm not going to comment. But to the
| degree that that's the case, of course we owe it to our shareholders
| to have a strategy. And when there is something interesting to say,
| you'll be the first to hear it.
| I ask the question, "Does Microsoft really have any IP"? No. They have
| Xerox user interface, Digital VMS kernel, OS/2 API and BSD networking
