Microsoft Microsoft chief executive Steve Ballmer has warned users of Red Hat Linux that they will have to pay Microsoft for its intellectual property. "People who use Red Hat, at least with respect to our intellectual property, in a sense have an obligation to compensate us," Ballmer said last week at a company event in London discussing online services in the UK.

"And all you people that like the xbox 360, and HD-DVD support this stupid company? You should all be ashamed of yourselves. These comments want me to never use MS products ever again. Oh wait, I vowed that along time ago, when MS did something else like this."

Ad-hominem attack.

I don't have nor do I intend on having a 360 but it has nothing to do with the topic at hand and those are a seperate division of MSFT that could (and should have) be easily broken from the company and spun off as a different one if an anti-trust suit ever actually punished MSFT as they should have been.
