Steve Ballmer Does An About-Face On Linux

Steve Ballmer famously called Linux a "cancer" back when he felt the open-source OS was a threat. Apparently now he just loves Linux. roll eyes (sarcastic)

Speaking on Wednesday night at a dinner hosted by Fortune magazine, Ballmer said the position was right for the time, but the threat from Linux was now "in the rearview mirror." "The company made a ton of money by fighting that battle very well," he said. "It's been incredibly important to the company's revenue stream" to maintain its position with its own Windows operating system.
