Post Is Linux pushing Windows into a corner?

Hey guys, I found this's kind of funny. In part of it, M$'s Chief executive Steve Ballmer said,

"We haven't figured how to be lower cost than Linux,"

And then he went on to say..

"Microsoft has now been forced to focus on the concept of total cost of ownership (TCO). "We're actually having to learn how to say we may have a higher price on this one but look at the additional value. Look at how the value actually leads to lower total cost of ownership despite the fact that our price may be higher," while Microsoft can't be lower-priced, "we can be lower cost".

you guys getting the picture? thing they're going to say is that using Linux is unethical!

here's the
full article.
