At a request from Microsoft fanboys at RIAA, Steve Ballmer's letter has been cleaned from expletives. Under no circumstances should you read the main article, unless you are a Linux sysadmin. The words here are much more frightening for you than those found in the non-lite article.
edit Steve Ballmer's polite apology letter to Google
Dear BELGIUM Eric Schmidt,
I would like to BELGIUM politely apologize for my BELGIUM aggressive behavior. I fully realize that this BELGIUM move dealt a serious blow to Microsoft's reputation in the eyes of BELGIUM software corporations, leave alone the opinion of BELGIUM independent developers.
Destroying BELGIUM Google was never my intent. As the Microsoft CEO, I am BELGIUM interested in the continuation of the long-term BELGIUM partnership between Microsoft and Google. Furthermore, it would be an honor for me to BELGIUM participate in any BELGIUM future Google campaigns, including those that promote the BELGIUM competitors of Microsoft. It should be widespread knowledge that Microsoft BELGIUM respects fair competition and has never engaged in any BELGIUM attempts to undermine it.
As a token of my BELGIUM goodwill, I hereby resign all claims that BELGIUM leaving Microsoft is crime and vow to never again BELGIUM throw furniture at or otherwise harm my own BELGIUM colleagues. Microsoft agrees to recognize the BELGIUM fact that selling copies of free software is BELGIUM legal, regardless of the method by which these BELGIUM copies were obtained. In respect to BELGIUM copyright law, Microsoft recognizes the GNU General Public BELGIUM License and other free licenses as BELGIUM valid legal documents.
Yours BELGIUM sincerely,
Microsoft, One Microsoft Way, Redmond, WA
P.S. No committee or BELGIUM court has forced me to write this BELGIUM letter.
