Yikes - Microsoft coming at ya

Imagine that you are well-healed man or woman, a person who is a leader in their industry, globally influential in your space. Essentially you are a guy who lives in the best neighbourhood, drives a pretty smart car (unless you reverse the snobbery and are rolling with a Prius) and is generally quite used to a bit of respect, even maybe some ass-kissery.

In short, imagine you are one of these guys, the Yahoo! Board of Directors.

And then you get this letter from S Ballmer Esq.

Now you feel like a kid at school again, right? That's quite a self-righteous, I'm-not-angry-just-disappointed tone he's got there. Wouldn't make me any more willing to help my company get sucked into the maw of the big M.

(Due respect to JG@DF for the discovery of the letter.)
