Random Sampler: Microsoft vs. Google, SugarCRM, Flock gets funded (?!?),
Ubuntu, and more

| The Guardian spoke with Ubuntu's Mark Shuttleworth about a wide range of
| things, from how he hires to the changing desktop market. On this latter
| point, Mark said, "[P]eople are increasingly defining the desktop as the
| thing that they get access to the internet from. In that case, there's a real
| possibility that we're able to shift people onto different platforms." Like
| Ubuntu, of course.

Feeling the heat at Microsoft

,----[ Quote ]
| A couple of years ago you reiterated that IBM was Microsoft's biggest
| competitor and you said not just on the business side, but overall. If I ask
| you who is Microsoft's biggest competitor now, who would it be?

| Ballmer: Open...Linux. I don't want to say open source. Linux, certainly have
| to go with that.
