I think the fans of other platforms are threatened by a possible ascent of Windows :).
Why don't you embrace the competition?!

I would never forget Ballmer's reaction to the iPhone when he said.. "no body wants to run a browser on a phone!" and in 2007 he said about the iPhone "It's the most expensive phone in the world and it doesn't appeal to business customers because it doesn't have a keyboard, which means it's not a very good email machine. ... We have great Windows Mobile devices in the market today. I look at that and say I like our strategy, I like it a lot. We're selling millions and millions and millions of phones a year. Apple is selling zero phones a year."

I don't know about his management skills, but Steve Ballmer is just so obnoxious.
