What's with all these Microsoft old guys wearing sweaters?
Seriously. Bill Gates had a sweater. Ballmer has some ratty-ass sweater. Is that supposed to be endearing? If so, to whom -- other old guys on the golf course?
Appearances count, and as long as Ballmer is the pitchman for the stuff -- overweight and dressed in some 10 year old cartigan -- not only will I not take Microsoft seriously, but I don't want to have anything to *do* with Microsoft anymore.
