Well, probably because Burger King follows the Microsoft Model (or vice
versa): cheap goods, "low" cost, high volume.
Ballmer: Well, the question is, how do we get higher price points? We'll
have some people in those "mission critical" applications choosing our
enterprise editions. As people move into more mission-critical
applications they will naturally choose some of our higher-priced items.
We are the high-volume, low-priced guys in every space in which we
play--with some small exceptions around open source, if you will.
You're not my type. For that matter, you're not even my species!!!
