Microsoft Microsoft's CEO Steve Ballmer had some interesting things to say yesterday about which companies Microsoft sees as its competitors in the client operating system space. You'd think Apple was their number one competitor - and you'd be wrong. Microsoft sees two other competitors as their primary adversaries.

Now that Microsoft realizes linux to be their number one threat, can we linux users please have MS Office for linux, running MS Office on Crossover or WINE sucks. Plus Microsoft should know Linux can't be beat, and in the business world if you can't beat them join them.

... or sue them.

Yes, one can only hope this patent litigatin nonsense comes to an end sooner rather than later:
