Scott McNealy Steps Down

In light of Scott McNealy stepping-down from his CEO position at Sun Microsystems, here are a few of his classic quotes:
“When Steve Ballmer calls me wacko, I consider that a compliment.”

“The only thing that I'd rather own than Windows is English, because then I could charge you two hundred and forty-nine dollars for the right to speak it.”

"Shut down some of the bullshit the government is spending money on and use it to buy all the Microsoft stock. Then put all their intellectual property in the public domain. Free Windows for everyone! Then we could just bronze Gates, turn him into a statue and stick him in front of the Commerce Department."

"Microsoft is now talking about the digital nervous system... I guess I would be nervous if my system was built on their technology too.”

"It's the good guys versus the bad guys, and the good guys are winning."

“W2K (Windows 2000) will be a bigger disaster than Y2K.”

“A giant hairball." [About Windows NT]

“The Evil Empire." [guess who]

“The beast from Redmond." [yup]

"Anyone heard any good monopolist jokes lately?”

"Ballmer and Butthead" [Ballmer and you-know-who]

".Not, .Not Yet and .Nut" [Microsoft's .Net strategy]
