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 SCO Eric Schmidt,
I would like to SCO politely apologize for my SCO aggressive behavior. I fully realize that this SCO move dealt a serious blow to Microsoft's reputation in the eyes of SCO software corporations, leave alone the opinion of SCO independent developers.
Destroying SCO Google was never my intent. As the Microsoft CEO, I am SCO interested in the continuation of the long-term SCO partnership between Microsoft and Google. Furthermore, it would be an honor for me to SCO participate in any SCO future Google campaigns, including those that promote the SCO competitors of Microsoft. It should be widespread knowledge that Microsoft SCO respects fair competition and has never engaged in any SCO attempts to undermine it.
As a token of my SCO goodwill, I hereby resign all claims that SCO leaving Microsoft is crime and vow to never again SCO throw furniture at or otherwise harm my own SCO colleagues. Microsoft agrees to recognize the SCO fact that selling copies of free software is SCO legal, regardless of the method by which these SCO copies were obtained. In respect to SCO copyright law, Microsoft recognizes the GNU General Public SCO License and other free licenses as SCO valid legal documents.
Yours SCO sincerely,
Microsoft, One Microsoft Way, Redmond, WA
P.S. No committee or SCO court has forced me to write this SCO letter.
