The devil made them do it?

IBM's Al Zollar (he's listed as "IBM eServer iSeries general manager sales") was addressing the company's Asia Pacific Strategy Planning Conference in Australia the other day, and according to ZDNet ("IBM claims anti-Linux conspiracy") he said that a "set of forces...mostly located in Redmond" was out to derail adaptation of Linux. This conjured up images of Bill Gates as the emperor in the original Star Wars (with SCO's Darl MacBride as Darth Vader), but it could also have you thinking of Satan and Beelzebub.

Or maybe the image Zollar wanted to paint was more like the powers of darkness in Ghostbusters. Think about that cast of characters!
