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