LXer: Opinion: Linspire CEO Kevin Carmony spins his Microsoft deal

Published at LXer:

In his Linspire Letter, CEO Kevin Carmony talks about why he decided to make a deal with Microsoft, trading some technological info for an assurance from Microsoft that the Redmond giant won't sue Linspire's Linux customers for "intellectual property" infringement ... comparing himself to Steve Jobs in the process. Nice ... get yourself neck-deep, then compare yourself to Steve Jobs. Even Steve Jobs knows he's a crazy (expletive of your choice). Or should know. Rich, cunning, possessing uncanny instinct, etc. ... but still kind of crazy.
