Stephen Walli actually is back with Microsoft these days :-)

It was a rather different time. Personally I wouldn't have been as rude or have named names but it wasn't unreasonable to have a bit of fun at Microsoft's expense. This was Microsoft's "Linux is a cancer" period when they even had a senior exec whose charter was basically going after Linux (among other things).

For someone who wasn't around for all of that fun, thank you for helping add a little context to his words.
