| For its part Forbes was not so alarmist. Its headline calls Ballmer
| "bemused." For me, the key quote came when Ballmer attacked IBM and
| its support of the operating system:
| "They promote Linux, but if there's a bug in Linux, IBM is not
| the responsible party to fix that. It's whoever in the community."
| That's pure FUD. Of course if you have an IBM contract, IBM is going to
| take responsibility for making things right. Which makes you wonder
| whether Ballmer's whole interview is just that ? an attempt to sew a
| little Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt, make people fear Big Bad Microsoft
| (with a market cap now double that of IBM) is about to pounce, that
| kind of thing.
