Apparently using modern technology makes you a criminal. An astute former colleague just posted this to a mailing list we're on:
"Novell pays us some money for the right to tell customers that anybody who uses SUSE Linux is appropriately covered,” Ballmer said. This "is important to us, because [otherwise] we believe every Linux customer basically has an undisclosed balance-sheet liability."
Doug Morris (Universal Music group chairman/CEO), discussing why Microsoft is paying UMG more than $1 for each Zune sold:
"These devices are just repositories for stolen music, and they all know it," UMG chairman/CEO Doug Morris says. "So it's time to get paid for it."
Damn, I use Linux and I own an iPod. Someone call the cops! Who else wants to accuse me of being a thief? Guess it's a good thing I'm not a BOFA customer...
