| Meanwhile, Microsoft announced that it has

,----[ Quote ]
| When asked about how Dell and other 
| Microsoft partners have shown Android 
| tablets, Ballmer noted that a year ago, 
| many of those partners were selling Linux-
| based netbooks, but they didn't sell well.

| Ballmer did agree that the company has a 
| new class of competitors, but said that 
| was nothing new--10 years ago, it faced 
| Linux and OpenOffice, for instance.
