Microsoft "'We have said think it over. Think twice', Wang is quoted as saying, 'It will create a huge negative impact for the ecosystem and other brands may take a negative reaction. It is not something you are good at so please think twice.' Wang went on to suggest that if Microsoft moves ahead with its tablet plans, the Taiwan-based Acer might replace the software giant as a partner. 'If Microsoft is going to do hardware business, what should we do? Should we still rely on Microsoft, or should we find other alternatives?', he is quoted as saying." Or, you could just build stuff that doesn't suck. Just a suggestion, Acer.

Release a Linux laptop that doesn't suck. That'll show 'em.


If that's the worst they can do, I can imagine Microsoft quoting the Joker: "you have nothing, nothing to threaten me with".

Things worked out great for the Joker in the end, right?

That's why it's called fiction.
