Quotation of the year candidate

by Michael Alderete on 2/6/2003

This rather understated quotation was in the context of a CNet article about how much money IBM is investing in Linux:

“Microsoft sees IBM spending money on Linux, making Linux more robust, getting in the way of their aspirations. I think it makes them very unhappy,” said Steve Mills [senior vice president of IBM’s Software Group].

Competition makes the industry better, so anything that makes Microsoft unhappy has got to be a good thing. Go Steve!
