"At a hastily convened press conference Bill Gates announced
that he personally thinks that 'Linux is the best OS ever.'
"He added, 'Mundie and Ballmer are idiots. Their talk about how
open source software damages intellectual property or how Linux is
a cancer, is moronic. When I heard these attacks I felt sick to my
stomach. How could a company that I poured my blood, sweat and
tears into spread these untruths? My conscience guides me, that's
why I'm before you today...'"
