Steve Ballmer: “Linux is communism”

That was 15 years ago:

And less than a year later: “Linux is a cancer that attaches itself in an intellectual property sense to everything it touches”
<http://www.theregister.co.uk/2001/06/02/ballmer_linux_is_a_cancer/>

A Mafia$oft man with a sense of humor. Ballmer retired as M$ CEO last year, and with him went the sense of humor, for this isn’t funny at all:
“The software periodically checks for system and app updates, and downloads and installs them for you. (…) By accepting this agreement, you agree to receive these types of automatic updates without any additional notice.”

“Finally, we access, disclose and preserve personal data, including your content (such as the content of your emails, other private communications or files in private folders), when we have a good faith belief that doing so is neccessary (…)”
