"Steve Ballmer is at least willing to talk with the open-source
crowd now, as his comments at Microsoft Worldwide Partner
Conference 2008 demonstrate. He's just not willing to actually
engage in open source as an appreciable part of his company's

"Ballmer lacks the imagination to conceive of a world where
Microsoft could open-source code and still make a lot of money
(He's apparently not heard of 'Google'...)"
