The big BOGU

The Register: Ballmer to China: 'Steal all the software you want, so long as it's ours'

"The Chinese will take MS' money all right, then make them their bitch when the Redmond well runs dry and they proudly roll out their own flavour of Linux to great nationalistic fanfare -- an accomplishment which, ironically, MS will have helped fund."

And now, appropriately...

DaveNet: B.O.G.U.

"One of the things I used to admire about Microsoft is a philosophy called BOGU, which stood for Bend Over and Grease Up. It was a reminder that they would take it up the butt for the bigger prize."

So will MS get the prize, or will they just be butt-fucked by the Chinese?
